The Planetary Society

The Planetary Society is the charity that I'm campaigning for in this year's Blogathon.
Click the link to pledge today! SciFi Ranter Girl's Blog-a-thon Campaign Page.
The Planetary Society is the largest nonprofit, nongovernmental, space advocacy group on Earth. Funded entirely by individuals like yourself, the Society helps to make space exploration happen in many different ways, including:
* Supporting and funding innovative and novel research and development projects that can seed future projects of planetary exploration.
* Actively lobbying governments around the world in support of space exploration.
* Providing extensive coverage on current robotic space missions like Cassini and the Mars Exploration Rovers.
* Supporting educational activities about the exploration of the solar system and the search for extraterrestrial life.
* And much more …

The Society sponsors novel and innovative projects that will "seed" further exploration. These projects, funded by our members – not with government support, distinguish the Society as an organization that "makes it happen."
The current list of projects includes:
* Earthdials
* Mars Stations
* Near-Earth Objects (NEO) Research and Missions
* Planetrek
* Political Action
* Red Rover Goes to Mars™
* Red Rover, Red Rover
* Scholarships
* Search for Extraterrestrial Life (SETI)
* Solar Sailing with Cosmos 1

The Planetary Society was founded in 1980 by Carl Sagan, Bruce Murray, and Louis Friedman, The Planetary Society is a non-profit, non-governmental membership organization that supports and advocates exploration of the solar system and the search for extraterrestrial life. With 100,000 members in more than 140 countries, the Planetary Society is the largest space-interest organization on Earth
