Space Foundation Takes to the Air

Written by: Space Foundation Editorial Team

 For the next two months, American Airlines passengers will get the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of space technologies for those of us on Earth - and in the air. Space Foundation Director - Space Awareness Kevin Cook is featured in an interview on the airline's Executive Report onboard broadcast.

In the interview, Cook talks about two Space Foundation programs: Space CertificationTM and the Space Technology Hall of Fame® and gives specific examples of space-based technologies, including several that improve airline operation and safety. He also discusses the power space exploration has to inspire young people to pursue scientific careers.
