Space Technology Hall of Fame Exhibit to appear in Science Discovery Center

Written by: developer

The Space Technology Hall of Fame will see increased visibility with a display at a new museum, science discovery center & planetarium in Albany, Ga. Currently under construction, the more than 15,000 square foot, $3.8 million structure will house exhibits and programming about space including multi-media presentations, a storytelling area, and a discovery room focusing on children ages 5-16. A large exhibit will showcase Bob’s Candies for their work with Heat Pipe Systems Technology. Bob’s Candies was inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame in 1990 for adapting heat pipe technology – originally developed for temperature control of sensitive space electronic systems – to control humidity in building environments.

As part of the display featuring Heat Pipe Systems, the Space Foundation has donated a DVD featuring the history of the Space Technology Hall of Fame as well as a presentation shadowbox and bronze medallion honoring the technology and the inductee organizations: NASA Kennedy Space Center, Georgia Power Corporation, Florida Solar Energy Center, Exxon, Alaska Pipeline, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Kona Corporation, Dinh Company, and McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing).
