From Jim Green, Director, Planetary Science Division, and Jonathan Rall, Executive Secretary, Planetary Science Subcommittee

“Due to the unexpected and tragic loss of Ron Greeley, Chair of the Planetary Science Subcommittee (PSS), the PSS meeting scheduled for November 2-3 at NASA Headquarters has been canceled. The meeting will be rescheduled for a later date and notice of that new date will be published in the Federal Register.

We apologize for any inconvenience due to these extraordinary circumstances but felt that the meeting should be canceled since it would likely conflict with Ron’s funeral or memorial service. We anticipate that many in the planetary science community will pay their respects to Ron, a pillar of planetary science, and celebrate his incredible journey.”
