Subject: Global Planetary Defense Awareness Survey

My name is Erin and I am a member of  the International Team for Research
and Coordination of Earth Protection Technologies (InTeRCEPT), under the
Near-Earth Object Project Group of the Space Generation Advisory Council
(SGAC). I am writing to you as we are distributing a survey with the aim to
understand better what is the current global level of Planetary Defense
Awareness, particularly among the young generation. Our team will use the
data acquired from the questionnaire to identify the knowledge gaps and
areas in the field, with the aim to better focus our future efforts to
spread awareness on this subject.

To help ensure Australian representation, would it be possible to send this
survey out to your members? I have included a link to the survey so you can
see what the survey entails.
It takes just a few minutes to complete the survey.

Thank you in advance for supporting our research, your contribution can
make a difference!

Best Regards,

"...it’s a human story that builds to a climax and it’s personal from end
to end.
You start out wondering why you bought those blue pajamas and later you’re
wondering why you were born. You go from the foolishly absurd to the deadly
serious and you’ve passed through the gaudy and the nasty along the way.
You get to the edge and you’re played out and you wonder where’s the good
news? Isn’t there supposed to be good news?"
        - Bob Dylan
