#06 AAS Publishing | https://journals.aas.org/
Our journals and ebooks programme help to support the AAS mission to enhance and share humanity’s scientific understanding of the universe. Through our publications, including The Astronomical Journal (AJ), The Astrophysical Journal (ApJ), The Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series (ApJS), The Astrophysical Journal Letters (ApJL), and Research Notes of the AAS (RNAAS) you can disseminate your research to interested readers across the globe.
#09 NASA Infrared Telescope Facility | http://irtfweb.ifa.hawaii.edu
The NASA Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF) is located near the summit of Maunakea on the island of Hawai'i. The observatory is operated and managed for NASA by the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawai’i. The primary mission of the IRTF is to provide ground-based observations that support NASA Solar System programs, including planetary spacecraft missions, the characterization of near-Earth objects, and fundamental planetary research.
#10/11 Planetary Data System (PDS) | https://pds.nasa.gov/
The Planetary Data System (PDS) archives electronic data products from NASA planetary missions. PDS actively manages the archive to maximize its usefulness. All PDS-curated products, more than 1.6 PB, are stored in a well-defined format, peer reviewed, fully documented, and available online at https://pds.nasa.gov to scientists and to the public at no charge. The PDS is a member of the International Planetary Data Alliance (IPDA).
#12 LPG-PLANMAP | https://lpg-umr6112.fr
The research activities of the "Laboratoire de Planétologie et Géodynamique (LPG)" focus on four main topics: Marine Systems in Transition, Earth, Diversity of the Icy Worlds and Terrestrials Planets.
These activities extends from the Earth to the other solid bodies of the solar system and to the exoplanets. The technical platforms of the laboratory are devoted to observations, analysis and experiments over all scales, from spatial observations to field studies.
#13 VR2Planets – Virtual reality for Geosciences | https://vr2planets.com/ | @vr2planets
VR2Planets is a spinoff of the Planetology Laboratory of Nantes (CNRS/Univ. Nantes). The goal of VR2Planets is to create virtual reality applications for research and education in geosciences. We have a strong background in data integration coming from space exploration. The scientific background of VR2Planets engineers is a key strength to produce high fidelity and realistic virtual environments from the complete archives of images taken by robotic spacecraft.
#18 NASA Exoplanet Science Institute | http://nexsci.caltech.edu/
The NASA Exoplanet Science Institute (NExScI) is a science operations and analysis service organization for NASA Exoplanet Exploration Program projects. NExScI facilitates the timely and successful execution of exoplanet science by providing software infrastructure, science operations, and consulting to the NASA Exoplanet Exploration Program projects and their user communities. NExScI is part of IPAC, located on the campus of the California Institute of Technology.
