Stories, updates, insights, and original analysis from The Planetary Society.
See the month’s coolest space pictures, see planets in the night sky, and create the future in space that you want to see.
Faraway spacecraft, distant objects, the lunar farside, and a pretty out-there art project.
From searching for life to training for spaceflight, water is an essential part of space exploration.
An unusual lunar feature, Saturn’s shining rings, and Mars’ complex gullies.
Take a look at some of our favorite recent space images and learn about an express mission to Mars.
Astronomers around the world are working to protect the Earth from asteroid impacts, with the help of Planetary Society members and donors.
This week in space: Mars days almost match up with ours, and light and molecules are created by distant stars.
The real science of aliens, the policy implications of ET, and new views of worlds beyond our own.
Two new grant-winning projects, a collection of awesome space imagery, a mighty plume, and much more this week in space.
Detailed Mars maps, insights into the Venusian surface, and views of Uranian rings all have one thing in common: they don’t happen without public support for space.
VERITAS would peer through Venus’ clouds to study its surface like never before, but it needs your help.
A planet shows its pole, another shows possible volcanic activity, and the Moon keeps surprising us with more water.
New discoveries from Ryugu, material heading our way from Bennu, and anticipation for a mission to Psyche.
When searching for extraterrestrial life, we have to base our hunt on what we know about life on our own planet. This may seem limiting, but there's a lot we can learn from the astonishingly diverse lifeforms we have here on Earth.
Curiosity captures crepuscular rays on Mars, a new member community launches, and solar sailing takes exploration into the future.
Finding asteroids before they hit Earth not only protects us from harm, it can also yield beautiful photos.
A space-based solution like NEO Surveyor will find more asteroids, more quickly, than any ground-based alternative. Combined with deflection technology, this gives humanity a chance to alter its fate should a threatening asteroid be found early enough.
When we combine data sources, collaborate with each other, and invite artistic perspectives, we can better understand the Universe we live in.
An old image of Mars drives scientific questions today, moons and mini asteroids fuel fascination, and an unexpected ursine figure shows itself.
The more we search, the more we find. From exoplanets to moons to asteroids, the list of worlds just keeps growing.
