PEN -- Planetary Exploration Newsletter


About PEN

PEN provides an open conduit of news and announcements across the professional community of planetary science and related disciplines. It distributes messages from NASA officials, meeting announcements, job announcements, and your submissions of news regarding or impacting solar system exploration, upcoming mission events, policy issues, and editorials. PEN is distributed nominally once a week. There will be times when volume or events will require more frequent PEN distributions.
