Description

SSI harnesses the power of discovery to engage the public in science.

As humans, we are driven to exploration. We are fascinated by perennial questions such as: Are we alone? Might we someday live on other planets? There are few things that capture our imaginations more than the mysteries of space and the wonders of our own planet. The excitement of space science offers a compelling hook for engaging the public in science and inspiring a new generation of innovators.

Founded in 1992, the Space Science Institute (SSI) is a research and education nonprofit with a vision to expand humankind's understanding and appreciation of planet Earth, our Solar System, and the universe beyond. Society benefits from the pursuit of new knowledge – the more we understand planetary systems and star forming regions, the more we understand our own planet.

SSI is responding to a crisis in research, public science literacy and STEM education.

Discovery and invention are the keys to a healthy and prosperous future and space science has a critical role to play. The future of space science in the United States depends heavily on:
• A strong research infrastructure.
• A scientifically literate populace that supports investment in research.
• A pipeline of future research scientists.

All of these critical factors are at risk. Consider that 70% of the engineering workforce will retire in the next 10 years, yet our universities are graduating more visual arts and performing arts m
