SAGANet (Social Action for Grassroots Astrobiology Network–www.saganet.org) is a social and collaborative web-platform created to connect scientist with the public, leveraging the increasing ubiquity of social media as a platform to engage the nation’s youth.
The mission of SAGANet is to sustain a vibrant community of scientists and science enthusiasts in an inviting environment that supports shared learning. Equipped with a rich interface for communication (forums, user-defined interest groups, multi-user video calls and text chat), information sharing (document creation, video feed, activity statuses, photo, video and audio uploads), and social media (facebook, twitter, google+ and flickr integration), SAGAnet fills a previously unoccupied niche on the World Wide Web by providing a science-focused social environment around the broad and interdisciplinary field of astrobiology and space exploration.
