The Planetary Society creates and participates in events to bring the excitement of space exploration to public audiences. From our world-wide Planetfests to lectures in small-town libraries to hanging a solar-sail blade in Rockefeller Center in New York, we are constantly finding new ways involve our members in the excitement of space exploration.
March 3rd - 4th, 2019: be the ultimate space advocate. Join fellow members of The Planetary Society as we descend on Capitol Hill to speak for space science and exploration. Bring your passion for space exploration. We'll train you, schedule your meetings on Capitol Hill, and make you an effective advocate. It's fun. It's effective. It makes a difference.
