Space Technology Hall of Fame
The Space Technology Hall of Fame® increases public awareness of the benefits of space exploration and encourages further innovation by recognizing individuals, organizations and companies that effectively adapt and market technologies originally developed for space to improve the quality of life for all humanity.
We work with U.S. and international space agency technology transfer offices to identify the most significant space innovations and with panels of space and technology experts to select the most meaningful examples for induction. The ever-growing list of honorees showcases the significant contributions space makes to life on Earth.
To date, we have inducted 69 technologies and honored hundreds of organizations and individuals who transformed space technology into commercial products that improve the quality of life for all humanity.
Learn about the world class technologies that have been inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame over the past 25 years.
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.
