Three commercial space technologies devoted to distance communications are receiving one of the highest industry honors — induction into the Space Technology Hall of Fame.
The accolade is awarded to those space technologies with “life-changing” potential and is meant to highlight the scientists, engineers and innovators behind the work, according to a statement from the Space Foundation, which manages the awards. The induction comes amid World Space Week 2020, which is celebrating how satellites improve life on Earth.
You can watch the virtual induction ceremony on Thursday (Oct. 8) at 1 p.m. EDT (1700 GMT) in the window above or directly from the Space Foundation here.
