We believe that by working together, the people of Earth can explore worlds, find life, and defend our home.
Space exploration is a human endeavor, not the work of individual nations. Discovering our place in the cosmos is a goal that the whole world can and should work together to achieve. Our global collaboration work brings together explorers from around the planet to achieve great things.
Our Global Collaboration program:
- Engages our network of global members, volunteers, and partners
- Harnesses opportunities to connect experts, decision-makers, influencers, and advocates.
Our work seeks to cultivate a worldwide movement to ensure the brightest possible future for space science and exploration.
"Space brings out the best in us."
—Bill Nye, CEO of The Planetary Society
