The Mars Society is listed as one of the top 101 disruptive companies and non-profits that are making a difference in the world today. Proud to be a part of it. #disruptors #MarsSociety

With everything that is going on in the world, sometimes all we want is to know that there are still kind-hearted people out there who want to do that right thing and who care for their fellow man. Especially when it comes to disruptive technologies that we may not yet fully understand the impacts o...

Large concentrations of water (over 40% by weight) found in Martian equatorial regolith.

The water could fuel future missions and even hold hints of extraterrestrial life.

Looking forward to seeing everybody this Sunday night — both reconnecting with old friends and making new ones! Reminder there is also an event on Saturday at the museum with Leonard David. Don’t miss that!

Today is the 60th anniversary of the launch of "Sputnik" which was the first artificial satellite. Warmest Congratulations to all my Russian friends on this an...niversary.

At the time, (if you can believe it) the U.S. was even more afraid of Russia than today. For those of you who know me well, I am a huge proponent of U.S.-Russia relations, as they pertain to space. I believe that if we can continue to figure out how to work together to explore space, all the other problems will be resolved eventually.

Here is a message which a colleague of mine found on the Roscosmos website (via Google translate):

Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev congratulated the workers and veterans of the space industry on the 60th anniversary of the launch of the first artificial Earth satellite. The text of the congratulatory telegram was published in the website of the Russian government.

Dear friends!

This year we celebrate a special, significant date - the 60th anniversary of the launch of the first artificial Earth satellite.

As Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky said, "the first great step of humanity is to fly out for the atmosphere and become a satellite of the Earth. The rest is relatively easy ... "And this first step into space was made by our compatriots. Outstanding people, thanks to which a real scientific and technical breakthrough was made in the history of mankind, and the Russian word "satellite" became a common name and entered many languages ​​of the world.

This achievement is the result of incredible efforts and talent of Sergey Pavlovich Korolev and Mstislav Vsevolodovich Keldysh, many other legendary designers and scientists, engineers and technicians. Thanks to them, their associates and followers, the world science received a tremendous impetus to development, enriched with fundamentally important knowledge about our planet and the solar system, about the origin and evolution of the universe.

Today, in a near-earth orbit, there are thousands of different satellites. And it does not surprise anyone. They carry out the most important tasks, including strategic ones, related to ensuring the defense capability and security. Today, the personnel of the rocket and space industry are working on more ambitious projects aimed at investigating deep space, implementing the lunar program and creating fundamentally new spacecraft. Your energy and professionalism help Russia to remain the leading space power. I am sure that we will never give up this status.

I wish you new achievements. And let luck be your faithful companion.
