Space Technology Hall of Fame

Written by: developer

The Space Foundation is now seeking nominations for induction into the prestigious Space Technology Hall of Fame® in 2015. The program honors innovations by organizations and individuals who transform space technology into commercial products that improve life on Earth.

The deadline is Aug. 22, 2014, and anyone can submit a nomination of a technology that was developed anywhere in the world for use in space and then modified or adopted for use on Earth.

The Space Foundation’s Space Technology Hall of Fame was established in 1988 to increase public awareness of the benefits that result from space exploration programs and to encourage further innovation. Since that time, 69 technologies have been inducted.

Each nomination is reviewed for completeness, assessed by technical experts and then ranked by a prestigious panel of judges.
