Every year the Space Foundation solicits nominations from a broad range of audiences, including NASA Centers, the Departments of Defense, Commerce and Transportation, commercial aerospace and technology companies and space agencies from around the world.
We encourage you to submit technologies you feel are deserving of recognition. Using the Official Nomination Form, individuals and organizations may nominate up to three technologies, including previously nominated technologies that have not been inducted.
We rely on you to follow the Space Technology Hall of Fame Selection Criteria included on the Official Nomination Form. Supporting material submitted for review—such as technical papers and product literature—will be assessed for completeness. Candidate technologies will then be submitted to a prestigious panel of judges and ranked according to the Space Technology Hall of Fame Selection Criteria.
Top-ranked candidates will then undergo a due diligence process. Selected nominations are announced each winter and officially inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame the following spring during a special awards ceremony and dinner held during the Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colo.
We look forward to receiving your nominations. The deadline for nominations for the 2018 Space Technology Hall of Fame induction is August 15, 2017.
