Our members include over 1000 scientists and enthusiasts from 52 countries who study meteorites, cosmic dust, asteroids, comets, samples returned by space missions, impact craters, and the origins of the Solar System.

The Society organizes annual meetings and workshops. It honors outstanding scientific and service contributions and helps encourage and support young planetary scientists world-wide.

The Meteoritical Society records all known meteorites in its Meteoritical Bulletin and publishes Meteoritics and Planetary Science, a leading journal of planetary science.
