Abstract

Dismayed by cutbacks and proposed further reductions in federal funding for planetary science, the Planetology Section of the American Geophysical Union has adopted the following resolution, which touches on some of the reasons for planetary exploration and argues that it is in the public interest to maintain a vigorous planetary program.

We firmly endorse the scientific value of planetary exploration and its significance for our nation and our world.
