Venus is the HOT planet of the year! Come hear about new results from Akatsuki, and upcoming Venus missions: DAVINCI, VERITAS, and EnVision!
Jupiter & Galilean Satellites Session
Juno's extended mission has enabled close flybys and observations of the Galilean satellites (most recently: Ganymede). This plenary will showcase new results from both Juno and ground-based observations of the Galilean satellites, along with plans for the upcoming Europa Clipper mission.
Not all planets are in our Solar System! This plenary will be dedicated to the science of super-Earths and sub-Neptunes, including their characterization, formation, and evolution.
Since March 2020, the global pandemic pushed us all into virtual conferences, yielding many lessons about accessibility challenges. As we look forward to in-person and hybrid meetings, we seek to consider these experiences, along with those of people with disabilities who have long faced access difficulties with in-person conferences, to find ways to improve science conference participation for all attendees. SciAccess (https://sciaccess.org/), founded by Anna Voelker, is an organization at the forefront of inspiring, developing, and promoting innovative approaches to equitable science access, from inclusive space science outreach pedagogies to accessible conference strategies to enabling the future of disabled astronauts.
