    About Planetary Studies Foundation (PSF):

    PSF is an Illinois not-for-profit organization whose goal is to foster scientific literacy and to encourage interest in the sciences. Established in 1989, PSF has grown to be a multi-faceted organization dealing with meteorite research and recovery, polar exploration, and science education. PSF acquired a Starlab Portable Planetarium in 1993 and since then has provided basic planetarium astronomy shows to over 25,000 visitors. PSF conducted three successful meteorite expeditions to Antarctica in 1998, 2000 and 2002. On Antarctica 2000, we provided support for a NASA researcher to extend his research into extremophile life forms, which may hold the key for finding life forms on other planets.
