National Space Society: Dave Williams on Psyche, Dawn and New Horizons missions.
Dr. Dave Williams will present a talk on the NASA Psyche mission and updates on the Dawn and New Horizons missions. Since we last had the pleasure of hearing him speak to us, Dr. Williams has become a science team member of NASA’s Psyche mission, selected by NASA in January 2017 as the next Discovery mission to visit metal asteroid (16) Psyche in 2026. In 2017 he received the Ronald Greeley Distinguished Service Award from the Planetary Geology Division of the Geological Society of America. Dr Williams is Associate Research Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona and Director of the Ronald Greeley Center for Planetary Studies, the NASA Regional Planetary Information Facility at ASU. He is also the Director of the NASA Planetary Aeolian Laboratory at the Ames Research Center in California. Dave is currently performing research in volcanology and planetary geology, with a focus on planetary mapping, geochemical, and remote sensing studies. Members of the Moon Society and the United Federation of Phoenix will be joining us. Afterwards we plan to meet for lunch at Mesa Community Restaurant at 535 N Country Club Dr, Mesa, AZ 85201 This is not an official HSGP event but may be of interest to some of our members.

What we're about

Public Group


HSGP is a warm and welcoming community of people with open minds and lots of questions. While we have a lot of diverse opinions and interests, we are accepting and tolerant of differing ideas and positions. While non-belief in the supernatural brought many of us together, our belief in the essential goodness of humanity and dedication to open discussion keeps us together and helps us grow. We have only one life and we strive to make it a good one for ourselves and for others. We are home to people with a wide range of beliefs and positions such as: humanists, atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, and nones. That covers a lot of ground!

In addition to our Facebook group (, we offer a variety of activities to support our Humanist goals and we are always looking for more ways to socialize, learn, and help others. We have a community center near downtown Mesa! Be sure to check us out at our Game nights, Sunday Speaker meetings, or other events.

If you are not a member, please consider becoming a paid member ( Your support keeps the building open and the activities running. If you’re not ready to commit to a membership, please join us at one of our free and open to the public events where we hope you will find like-minded individuals. Thank you and we look forward to meeting you!

About Humanism (from the American Humanist Association)
Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
