Foundation: 1972

Mission: The Planetary Science Institute studies the origin, characteristics, and evolution of planetary systems, including our solar system, Earth itself, and planetary systems around other stars. We convey the resulting knowledge to the scientific community, and to the public at large to promote science education and science literacy. We further use this knowledge to advance human activity in space and shape the future of robotic exploration of the solar system.

Vision: PSI strives to be a leading institution in: All areas of planetary system exploration, from basic research and data analysis to spaceflight missions; Advancing science education and science literacy; Supporting and expanding human space activities that benefit from and advance knowledge of the solar system; and Informing policy impacting the future of solar system exploration.
