What's new on this site:

Dear IPS Colleagues and Fellow Planetarians,


I am pleased to report to you all that the voting in the special election for filling the vacant position of IPS president elect has been concluded and the votes tallied in accordance with our rules. My thanks to Martin George, chair of the IPS Elections Committee, and the committee members for their meticulous organization of this important process.

The membership has voted for Joanne Young as new IPS president elect. Congratulations Joanne!

I would also like to thank Steve Savage for his participation in our democratic process. He has been a strong contender and candidate, and so I hope that he will consider standing for an office again in the future. As my time as president draws to a close at the end of this year, I now look forward to working with Joanne Young until she takes over the position of IPS president. I am really pleased that we have found such a high-profile person to step in and fill the vacancy left after Paul KnappenbergerĀ“s resignation.

- Thomas Kraupe
