National Planetary Exploration Car Wash & Bake Sale
To attract media and Congressional attention to the perilous NASA planetary exploration cuts proposed to take place 1 October, and the need to restore the planetary budget to FY12 or higher levels, a National Planetary Exploration Car Wash and Bake Sale is being planned for June 9th .
Planetary groups and institutions are invited to join, sponsoring their own event locally and inviting media coverage to their event.
Those already involved include planetary groups at: LPL, LPI, Moon Express (Google Lunar X Prize), Notre Dame, PSI, SwRI, UCF, UCLA, and the University of Maryland.
