National Space Society Welcomes Janet Ivey As New NSS Governor: Janet Ivey of Janet's Planet is NOW IN ORBIT as a member of the Board of Governors of the National Space Society

Washington, DC | Posted on August 27th, 2015

The National Space Society Board of Governors is composed of outstanding individuals in the fields of science, engineering, the arts, government, the press, business, law, medicine, and other professions and occupations, and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the society or its goals. The appointment was made official at the May 2015 National Space Society Board of Directors meeting in Toronto at the International Space Development Conference.

Janet is thrilled to be among such an elite group of space enthusiasts and pioneers. Among Janet's duties of promoting the National Space Society and its goals, a primary initiative will be to be a spokesperson for the NSS' Enterprise in Space (EIS) project, along with Geoff Notkin of Meteorite Men fame.

The mission of Enterprise In Space is to build, launch, operate, and later return to Earth an orbiter containing student experiments as a tribute to the many great visionaries of science and science fiction. EIS goals include:
Demonstrate and pioneer new technologies
Inspire and encourage space enterprise
Develop educational curricula for students contributing to related future endeavors in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) education
The Enterprise In Space mission will cover everything from 3D printing in space, to laser-based communications, to improvements in heat shields and thermal protection systems.
Janet Ivey is committed to enriching the lives of children via education and TV and online programming. She is a Buzz Aldrin ShareScience Ambassador, and has won a STEMFLORIDA award for Janet's Planet.

Janet presents two live shows, Tour of the Solar System and Exploring Microgravity. These shows are 21st century theater that encourage scientific literacy via the use of humor, theatrical antics, visual illusions, enticing graphic elements, and experiential opportunities to join Janet on stage so that students are fully engaged in the experience.

The mission for Janet and Janet's Planet is to encourage young people to stand in their magnificence and to inspire future generations to use their innate intelligence and creativity to create a better future via science and space exploration. Janet Ivey is a tireless advocate for children and has mentored countless young people all over the world. Janet's mission has and always will be to enrich the lives of children via art and science, multi-media education, and intelligent, informative AWE (Art, Wonder, and Experiential) infused programming that focuses on space exploration.
