Final Call for Nominations – Space Technology Hall of Fame®

Written by: developer

In 2017, the Space Foundation will celebrate the 30th year of its Space Technology Hall of Fame®, a program that increases public awareness of the benefits of space exploration.

The Space Technology Hall of Fame encourages innovation by recognizing individuals, organizations and companies that effectively adapt and market technologies originally developed for space to improve the quality of life for all humanity.

The Space Foundation works with U.S. and international space agency technology transfer offices to identify the most significant space innovations, and with panels of space and technology experts, to select the most meaningful examples for induction. The ever-growing list of honorees showcases the significant contributions space makes to life on Earth.

To date, we have inducted dozens of technologies and honored hundreds of organizations and individuals who transformed space technology into commercial products that improve the quality of life on Earth.

Do you know of a space-related technology that should be honored with our inductees? If so, please submit a nomination for 2017 by Aug. 15, 2016. See the nomination form and instructions here.

Induction will take place during the Space Foundation's 33rd Space Symposium, to be held in Colorado Springs, Colo., in April 2017.
