**don’t forget to keep up with CONFRONT because we have a lot more shots that will be posted as well as an interview with Chuck!**


T-Shirt Benefit Event: Spacetime Odyssey & Cosmos University 

T-shirts available for $11 at The Yetee.

Each year, representatives of The Planetary Society and CEO Bill Nye travel to Washington D.C. to educate Congress about NASA and its planetary exploration program. 

$3 from each sale will go toward The Planetary Society, aiding in their continuation to reverse cuts in annual funding for planetary exploration. For 3 years in a row, The Planetary Society has been successful in their efforts, and we need to keep that going!!
