NRC Planetary Decadal Survey (update)
Several members of our group are also members of the NRC Planetary Decadal Survey committees. I’ve seen at least one graduate student rapporteur from our group at the meetings as well. All members of our community are encouraged to know about and participate in the white papers being submitted on their behalf to the meetings, and to attend any open sessions when they occur in your area (here is a complete schedule).
Please note: committees have invited graduate students to take notes that will be posted on the web. If you live near or are traveling to one of the meetings, volunteer your time and you can sit in on some of the most important discussions to our profession this decade.
