DPS 53: Welcome!

Greetings from the 53rd meeting of the AAS Division for Planetary Sciences, happening virtually anywhere! This week, AAS Nova editor Susanna Kohler and I, along with a team of writers from the Astrobites collaboration — Briley Lewis, Macy Huston, Sabina Sagynbayeva, Sasha Warren, and Ali Crisp — will be bringing you updates on some of the exciting science from the virtual conference. Check back here or on astrobites.org on Wednesday and Friday for summaries of plenary sessions, press conferences, and more!

In honor of the DPS meeting, we’re declaring this week Planetary Sciences Week here at AAS Nova; in addition to summaries of research presented at the DPS meeting, be on the lookout for more planetary science content throughout the week.
