Advance Space Science & Exploration

Thanks to you, our advocacy work with the U.S. Congress and the White House has led to steady budget increases for NASA and Planetary Science since 2014.

This past year, we helped establish the Planetary Science Congressional Congress which grew to 32 members. It has just been re-established for the new Congress now in session, and we want to grow it even more.

This is critical because we lost some of our greatest champions of space exploration from both political parties in last fall’s election. With 111 freshmen members in Congress, your help is vital to rebuilding a strong coalition in Washington D.C.!

It’s time to take action!

First, we’re raising $200,000 to push forward with critical space advocacy priorities this year. And, to get us there, a generous anonymous donor has pledged $100,000 for a 1:1 match for all gifts up to that amount.

Second, we’ll ask you to sign our petition to Congress, encouraging all members to:
•Join the Planetary Science Congressional Caucus
•Continue growing NASA’s budget by at least 5%
•Support NASA initiatives to send humans beyond Earth orbit, to explore Mars and other high-priority destinations, and to support the search for life

Help us create a new movement for space and exploration - please make a gift today!
