The Space & Satellite Hall of Fame recognizes the invaluable contributions of the visionaries who have transformed life on planet Earth for the better through space & satellite technology. Members of the Hall of Fame are recognized pioneers in communications, satellite-related aerospace, scientific research, or the development and delivery of applications for business, institutions and government via space and/or satellite.

Clarke and Dr. Harold Rosen to Sidney Topol and Rene Anselmo. Today, a new wave of innovation is sweeping the industry, and we look forward to honoring the people who are making it happen.” [if !supportLineBreakNewLine] [endif]
