The Planetary Society

If you are unfamiliar with the Planetary Society, please visit their site and familiarize yourself a bit. Not only will you be more connected to Carl Sagan (and Bruce Murray and Louis Friendman), but you’ll potentially be on the front end of helping to make sure that exploration continues. This story about the Pluto fly-by will give you a better idea of just how integral society — and the Planetary Society in particular — can be in making sure that budgets and red tape don’t get in the way of exploring the universe we live in. And you can become a part of it by joining. What are you waiting for?

68 – The Love of Space pt. 2 with Mat Kaplan

Recorded in the old vault of the Planetary Society, it’s part two of a great chat with Planetary Radio host Mat Kaplan. He and David share more Elysian Space Dust IPA and discuss Mat’s life, his love of space, Ray Bradbury, and what’s next in humanity’s quest to find out where it came from.
