Space Foundation Wants to Know Your Space HeroCOLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Aug. 26, 2010) — Space Heroes can be found many places: in the movies, in comic books and graphic novels, on television and in real life. No matter who they are or where they come from, space heroes inspire others to learn and explore.

The Space Foundation, an international non-profit organization engaged in space awareness and advocacy, is conducting a survey to identify space heroes.

The results will help better explain who motivates individuals to support and promote space endeavors. There are no lists to choose from, no specific criteria, no rules … just a simple survey with sentences to complete: “My personal space hero is…” and “Because…?”

The link for the survey can be found on
