Sirius Satellite Radio will be inducted into the Space Foundation's Space Technology Hall of Fame next Thursday. The Space Foundation honors innovators who transform technology originally developed for space use into commercial products.
Steve Eisenhart, vice president, public affairs and policy, Space Foundation, said, "The Hall of Fame is proud to acknowledge Sirius Satellite Radio and award this accomplishment for creating and shaping a very promising satellite radio category."
For nearly 15 years, the Space Foundation, in conjunction with NASA, has recognized what it considers innovative companies and technologies to increase public awareness about space technology with practical applications in the commercial world. Nominations for the Space Technology Hall of Fame are solicited from NASA Centers, the Departments of Defense, Commerce and Transportation and commercial aerospace and technology companies. Information submitted for each nomination is screened and assessed by technical experts
To date, thirty-eight technologies have been inducted, including more than 150 organizations and nearly 200 individual innovators. Previous inductees include DirecTV, the Debakey heart pump and the Global Positioning System.
The 2002 Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be the culminating event of the 18th National Space Symposium, scheduled for April 8-11 in Colorado Springs, Colo.
