Space Camp Hall of Fame Wrap Up


The Space Camp Hall of Fame 2010 gala is over. You can see some photos here and here. If you want to see all of the photos from the event, click here.

Below are some remarks from NASA’s Deputy Administrator Lori Garver’s speech during the event:

First congratulations to those we are here to celebrate for their incredible accomplishments and contributions to space‐‐the Hall of Fame inductees.

It’s also hard to believe that it’s been almost a quarter century since my husband David and I went through the Space Academy Program. We had just been married at the time. Yes, this is one of the first things we did as newlyweds. Not embarrassing?? And we’re not the only ones. I understand that Francis French, honored here tonight, met his future wife at Space Academy Level II. Look out

The inductees into the Hall of Fame ‐‐ you’ve taken your passions and turned them into professions in science, education, military and the museum world, and then you’ve shared your experiences and touched the lives of young people around the world – you are making your contribution and leaving the world better than you found it.

You can read the text of the speech (PDF) here.

Robert Pearlman over at Collectspace also wrote up a summary of the event.

And just for fun, here is a surprise visit from Al Worden and his wife Jill:

    Hi Francis,

    I would really like the chance to speak with you regarding your book In The Shadow of the Moon and the contributor Gordon Cooper. ~If you could email me on the above address that would be great as we are looking to make a documentary.

    Kindest regards

    Production coordinator
