Kick Off Event—Early Career Professionals and the Planetary Decadal Survey

A kick-off event for the early career program of the Decadal Survey in Planetary Science and Astrobiology. Learn about the decadal survey and hear from the experts. The Decadal Survey on Planetary Science and Astrobiology will assess key scientific questions in planetary science and astrobiology, identify priority medium- and large-class missions and other initiatives, and present a comprehensive research strategy for the 2023–2032 timeframe. Community participation is important for the success of the survey.

Update on Planning for the National Academies' Decadal Survey in Planetary Science and Astrobiology

Representatives from the National Academies' Space Studies Board (SSB) and NASA provide an overview of the progress made towards preparing and organizing for the survey, along with an updated schedule for its implementation. Community involvement is an essential feature of all phases of the decadal process and a critical component to the success of the survey. The SSB welcomes all community input on matters facing the next survey, which include (but are not limited to) the technical and programmatic scope, structure, the cost and technical evaluation process, the role of early-career scientists, and the international context.
