A couple of weeks ago Jeffrey Zaslow, a columnist with the Wall Street Journal, contacted us about the survey completed by many of our members, including Jeff's father. Jeff wanted to hear about how Planetary Society members are still "dreaming big dreams," even in the midst of a poor economy. Read how our Executive Director, Lou Friedman, and two of our members -- Jamie Vogel and Rachel Middleton Price -- answered him in the April 1 Moving On column, Hard Times on Earth Inspire Some to Look to the Stars. We only wish the column could have included more responses from the thousands of surveys we received.
