DPS-EPSC 2023 HILL/WINE COUNTRY EXCURSION NOW FREE
Thanks to sponsorship by SwRI, the charter bus to the Saturday October 7 excursion to Texas wine-country (https://aas.org/meetings/dps55/excursions) is now free to attendees. Folks who have already paid $40 will be reimbursed. Another ~30 seats are available, first-come first-served. Attendees who have already registered for the meeting may go back to the registration page (https://aas.org/meetings/dps55/registration) and add this excursion item to their sign-up even after the first day of the meeting. Just be sure to complete it through the confirmation stage (with $0 payment). Texas wine country is the second largest in the U.S. next to California with a quality that is sure to surprise you, and the Texas whiskey distillery industry is booming (https://www.visitsanantonio.com/hill-country-wineries-and-tours/). The natural beauty of the picturesque Texas Hill Country region and historic Fredericksburg is worth the trip in itself.

NASA CROSS-AG IDEA WORKING GROUP
The NASA Cross-AG IDEA Working Group is organizing an Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) meeting for the planetary science community. Our aim is to create an event that caters to the needs of our community members by raising awareness of IDEA efforts and providing an open forum to discuss related topics. The meeting will be hybrid and likely take place over 3 days following a similar format to the NASA Assessment/Analysis Group (e.g., SBAG, OPAG) meetings with invited speakers and open mic times. This event is for the planetary science community and so we want to hear from you. Please spend a few minutes to help us shape this meeting by filling out this Google Form:
EUROPA CLIPPER ASTRONOMY TEAM KICKOFF
The kick-off meeting of the Europa Clipper Astronomy Team (ECAT) will take place during the DPS/EPSC meeting in San Antonio Wednesday October 4, from 12:15-1:15 in Conference Rooms 1-2. The purpose of this team is to conduct ground and space-based observations in support of Europa Clipper. It is open to all registered participants and will be hybrid. If you have a 1-2 slide presentation (e.g., suggestions; or examples of past successful support programs) please send it to [email protected] by Sept. 29. Sign-ups for the ECAT mailing list can also be sent to this address.

You are invited to subscribe to and participate in the Planetary Exploration Newsletter (PEN), now in its seventeenth year. PEN is a free weekly electronic newsletter, provided as a service by the Planetary Science Institute, for planetary scientists around the world to communicate with each other. The editors are volunteers.
PEN contains meeting announcements, job announcements, and your submissions of news regarding or impacting solar system exploration, upcoming mission events, awards, policy issues, as well as editorials, commentary and memorials, and planetary-related commercial announcements. PEN also includes announcements of PDS data releases, ROSES programs, and special messages to the planetary community from NASA leadership.
The PEN Meeting Calendar (http://planetarynews.org/meetings.html) strives to be the most exhaustive listing of planetary-related meetings, conferences and workshops around the world. Send the title, dates, location and URL to [email protected].

PEN was interrupted by a massive server failure of uncertain origin. Unfortunately, we lost about 25% of our subscriber list. We are now back to full operation, so if you have not received a newsletter for the last month, please go to http://planetarynews.org and resubscribe.
