0 views0 comments recently had the privilege of participating in The Planetary Society's Day of Action in Washington, DC, and we couldn't be more stoked to share our experiences with you. It was an incredible opportunity to advocate for space sciences and planetary exploration alongside over 100 passionate members of The Planetary Society.

A Mission for Planetary Science

On September 18, 2023, we joined forces with fellow advocates to make the case for a well-balanced and robust budget for planetary science. The upcoming fiscal year is a critical juncture for funding the next generation of space missions. It's a time when public support for NASA's science programs needs to shine, and that's precisely what we aimed to achieve.

The Return of In-Person Advocacy

After three years of virtual activities due to the pandemic, The Planetary Society revived its flagship in-person advocacy event. This event was a unique opportunity to connect with our representatives in Congress and convey the importance of planetary science at a time when budgets are under scrutiny.

Despite the political divisions in Washington, space exploration remains a unifying topic for legislators. We were warmly received by staff and Members of Congress from both parties and both chambers. It was heartening to witness the bipartisan support for science and space exploration.

Advocacy Knows No Boundaries

In addition to our in-person meetings, over 300 advocates from 47 states and the District of Columbia took action online. They sent letters to their legislators to coincide with the Day of Action meetings on Capitol Hill. These collective efforts make a real difference, especially when proposed cuts threaten space science missions.

Focusing on Mars Sample Return and Beyond

One of the central themes of our advocacy was the Mars Sample Return program. This program faces potential cuts despite widespread support from the scientific community and the public. We highlighted the importance of this multi-phased mission, emphasizing the need for consistent funding to avoid significant delays.

Our meetings with high-profile Members of Congress, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, House CJS Subcommittee Chairman Hal Rogers, and 19 other members of the House and Senate, emphasized the urgency of adequately funding Mars Sample Return.

Beyond Flagship Missions

Our advocacy extended beyond flagship missions to champion smaller and medium-sized missions. These missions play a crucial role in advancing our understanding of the cosmos. Advocates expressed enthusiasm for projects like Dragonfly, VERITAS, and NEO Surveyor, each of which promises groundbreaking discoveries.

Supporting the Future of Space Science

We also advocated for NASA's Research & Analysis program, highlighting its importance in enabling scientists to make discoveries using NASA's mission data and in training the next generation of space science leaders.

Why Advocacy Matters

Our experience at the Day of Action reinforced the vital role of advocacy in shaping the future of space science and exploration. It's not merely an event; it's a pivotal moment in The Planetary Society's mission to advance the exploration of space for a better understanding of ourselves and the Universe.

Looking Ahead

We left DC with a sense of accomplishment, knowing that our voices were heard on Capitol Hill. We're excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for space science and exploration, and we're committed to continuing our advocacy efforts.

We hope to see you in D.C. next year, joining hands as we work towards a brighter future of space exploration.

If you've been taking a moment to look up during the late evening hours recently, you might have noticed a brilliant, steady light over the southern horizon shortly after sunset. But wait, that's no ordinary star – it's the magnificent planet Jupiter!

Jupiter: A Behemoth in Our Solar System

Jupiter is a true titan, the largest planet in our solar system. To put its size into perspective, it boasts a diameter a staggering 11.6 times greater than Earth's, measuring a colossal 86,881 miles. To visualize this, picture over a thousand Earths fitting comfortably inside Jupiter's gargantuan frame.

Its immense mass makes Jupiter something of a miniature solar system unto itself, thanks to its formidable gravitational pull that captures numerous objects, making them Jupiter's moons. As of publishing this post in September 2023, Jupiter was known to have 92 moons, with more awaiting official names. Keep in mind that this count continues to evolve, as astronomers frequently discover new moons orbiting Jupiter. Tracking these newfound moons can be a bit like counting stars, ensuring each one is unique.

But Jupiter's moon family isn't static – it's a dynamic system where new moons form and old ones may meet their demise. Among these objects orbiting Jupiter, most share a common direction, while others dare to orbit against the flow. Similar to driving the wrong way in a roundabout, this can lead to potential celestial collisions.

Gazing at Jupiter's Moons with Binoculars

Even with just a decent pair of binoculars, you can peer into the sky and spot four of Jupiter's most prominent moons: Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. These four celestial companions, collectively known as the Galilean Moons, were first observed by Galileo Galilei using his modest telescope. While they're relatively easy to spot with basic equipment, distinguishing one from the other requires multiple observations over time (or a quick search on an app or WolfRamAlpha). These moons engage in a celestial dance around Jupiter, a dance we can only perceive from Earth's edge-on perspective. To determine their true distances from Jupiter, you must observe these moons as they switch from moving away to approaching the planet.

Each of the Galilean Moons has its own unique allure. For instance, Io, the closest to Jupiter, boasts the title of the most volcanically active body in our solar system. Europa is remarkably smooth and is believed to harbor liquid water beneath its icy surface, sparking curiosity about potential extraterrestrial life. Ganymede, larger than Mercury, is a moon of impressive size. On the other hand, Callisto, Jupiter's most distant moon, bears the scars of countless cosmic collisions, making it one of the most cratered bodies in our solar system.

Jupiter's Atmosphere and the Great Red Spot

With a good pair of binoculars or a decent telescope, you can explore Jupiter's mesmerizing atmosphere. You'll notice red stripes contrasting with white stripes – a result of various compounds reacting to sunlight. If you're fortunate enough to have a high-quality instrument (or be on an AstroTour), you might even glimpse Jupiter's iconic Great Red Spot. This colossal storm, more than twice the size of Earth, has been a subject of fascination for astronomers for centuries. Observing Jupiter over a long winter night, you can witness the Great Red Spot completing a lap around the planet, showcasing Jupiter's roughly 10-hour rotation.

Come get a closer look at Jupiter seeing it's stripes (this year better than ever with the haze), moons, red spot and more! On an astronomy tour! Book now for an out of this world experience!
