The Timeless Spirit of Exploration
What lessons do modern space exploration and the Lewis and Clark Expedition share?
Find out at the 2017 Space Technology Hall of Fame Dinner as we mark 30 years of space technology excellence with an evening of civil discourse, critical thinking and good citizenship.
Featured guest speaker Clay Jenkinson skillfully portrays Thomas Jefferson, U.S. president, visionary, statesman and student of the Enlightenment.
P. J. O’Rourke, leading political satirist, journalist and Space Foundation board member, will join Mr. Jefferson in a lively discussion linking modern space exploration and the famed Lewis and Clark Expedition.
The 2017 Space Technology Hall of Fame Dinner will be held on Thursday, April 6, the last evening of the Space Foundation’s 33rd Space Symposium, at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo.
The dinner is the last of three events at the Symposium celebrating the 2017 induction of two technologies into the Space Technology Hall of Fame. The technologies to be inducted will be announced later this month.
Thirty years ago, the Space Foundation’s Space Technology Hall of Fame was established to increase public awareness of the benefits that result from space exploration programs and to encourage further innovation. 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 for all humanity.
