Three events at the Space Foundation’s 33rd Space Symposium will honor the 2017 inductees into the Space Technology Hall of Fame. This year marks ’30 Years of Excellence’ for this venerable program, and the 2017 inductees are:

  • Radiant Catalytic Ionization (RCI), enhanced technology creating hydroxyls through photocatalytic oxidation technology
  • Staged Nutrient Release (SNR) Fertilizer, precise timed released polymer coated fertilizer granules that reduce fertilization applications and environmental damage

The three Symposium events are:

  • The Space Technology Hall of Fame® Private Induction Ceremony
  • The Space Technology Hall of Fame® Cocktail Reception, co-sponsored by ManTech International Corporation
  • The Space Technology Hall of Fame® Dinner, co-sponsored by SpaceX

The Private Induction Ceremony is by invitation only, and the reception and dinner are open to all Space Symposium attendees.

The dinner program will feature a fireside chat on the topic of exploration, with discussion between humanities scholar Clay Jenkinson portraying Thomas Jefferson and political satirist P.J. O’Rourke. Reserve dinner tickets in advance here.
