Foundation: 1992

Mission: The Space Science Institute (SSI) is a research and education 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation with a vision to expand humankind's understanding and appreciation of planet Earth, our Solar System, and the universe beyond. Society benefits from the pursuit of new knowledge - the more we understand planetary systems and star forming regions, the more we understand our own planet. SSI’s primary purposes are to (a) provide a place where scientists can be most productive and develop important research ideas, and (b) share the joy of science and educate communities nationwide. We believe that the future of space science (and discovery and invention in general) in the United States depends heavily on:A strong research infrastructure; A scientifically literate populace that supports investment in research; A pipeline of future science, technology, education, and mathematics (STEM) professionals. The key to our approach is that we offer the full continuum of discovery and education – we conduct world-class scientific research and we make it accessible to a broad population.
