About Planetary News

As of September 8, 2023, LPI’s Planetary News ended. The Lunar and Planetary Institute is exploring new ways to keep the planetary community informed. A new electronic newsletter is in development, and we plan to share those details soon.

Planetary News is an informational news service for the planetary community provided by the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI). The LPI disseminates the latest results of recently published research, community news and announcements, job opportunities, and more. Views and opinions expressed do not reflect the official policy or position of the LPI or Universities Space Research Association.

Content is arranged by month, category, and keyword. The LPI’s comprehensive calendar provides convenient access to planetary meetings and events.

Science articles are summarized by LPI postdoctoral researchers and edited by LPI staff scientists, who serve as science editors for this publication.
