She’s up next?
This year’s cover reflects the inspirational quotes of Iowan Peggy Whitson. Whitson, a retired astronaut who we feature on page 46 (read the article online here), was herself sparked to the stars by Sally Ride, the first female astronaut. Whitson now spends her days working to launch the next generation and young women in particular, towards the innovative STEM fields that have traditionally been dominated by men. For Iowa to reach unseen heights, it will take innovation from all parts of our state. We hope the stories in this year’s edition, like Whitson, inspires you to the next innovative idea, dream or … planet.
