Celebrating the end of LightSail's primary mission!

We are so excited to begin LightSail's extended operations, after the successful completion of its primary mission on June 25, 2020, the one-year anniversary of its launch aboard the SpaceX Falcon Heavy.

In case you weren't able to attend yesterday's webinar with LightSail's project and program managers, Planetary Society leadership, and our CEO Bill Nye, here is the link to the YouTube recording on The Planetary Society's channel.

We hope you enjoy it, and we want to thank you again for your support of this project.  As Bill says in the video, "Carl Sagan would be very proud of this project". Our LightSail spacecraft is the culmination of an idea dating back hundreds of years, and a project The Planetary Society has been working on for decades.

We appreciate your being a part of it. If you've not yet become a member of The Planetary Society, or want to share the opportunity with friends and family, simply go to planetary.org and choose your preferred level of membership, starting at only $4.00 per month.  

Stay safe and keep looking up.

 

Best,

Robin
