The Planetary Society Offices in Pasadena

ISS-Above at The Planetary Society

I am very excited to announce that today I installed an ISS-Above at the offices of The Planetary Society in Pasadena.

The Planetary Society, founded in 1980 by Carl Sagan, Bruce Murray, and Louis Friedman, to inspire and involve the world’s public in space exploration through advocacy, projects, and education. Today, The Planetary Society is the largest and most influential public space organization group on Earth. Bill Nye The Science Guy is their CEO.

Here are some photos of the ISS-Above in their offices.
