The Planetary Society needs new digs

I just added Florida Citizens for Science (run by Brandon Haught) to my Twitter list, and one of the first things I see from him is a link to an article about The Planetary Society looking for a new home. TPS has been around for decades, promoting solar system exploration and even funding a space mission to test solar sail technology!

Their California office is in a home that needs a lot of repairs, and they’re looking to move to something a tad more modern. Can’t say I blame them, of course, so if any BABloggees have a spare $3M lying around, there’s an investment opportunity for you. And you’d be helping a great cause, The Planetary Society does lots of good work.

Of course, if you have that kind of money, there are some other non-profits I might suggest you donate to as well…

    If I win the EuroMillions jackpot (€28M!) this Friday, I’ll see what I can do. ;-)

  3. You mean my membership dues don’t add up to $3M? :P

    Hey if Ken Ham can raise $27 Million, surely we could put together a fund to raise $3 Million? Does anyone know how such a thing might be devised, so we could all donate our couch-cushion money? Come on peeps, this is a worthy cause! I’ve got my buck-o-five waiting.

  5. I’ve been a member for years. I love Emily’s blog. They put my name on Moon and Mars and in space all over the place. They also have a great Planetary Report magazine and sponsor cool expeditions for members. I often quote them on my blog.

  6. It’s a typo, folks… Asking price is $2.1M. I’m sure you can all find that in your couch cushions…

    I gave them money for the place they are in now 20 years ago – what the heck did they do with it?!

    How is Cosmos 2 coming along? They won’t get a dime from me if they ever put it on a Russian ICBM again.
