2008 DPS ELECTION: A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR

Make History:  Your Vote Needed For Record Turnout

We are at an historic moment in science, where the DPS proposes
to formally recognize the naissance of the scientific study of
extra-solar planets.  As part of the current DPS elections,
the DPS proposes to expand its "Purpose" beyond our solar system
to include "other planetary systems."

Go to http://www.aas.org/vote/ to cast your vote.

An emphatic endorsement by a record number of DPS voters will
send ripples throughout the field and into history.  Your vote can
recognize the scientific potential and future for this new field
and inclusively welcome its practitioners within the DPS.

I urge each and every DPS member to cast your vote in the current
elections.

Rick Binzel, Chair
