About the Space Foundation

Their mission: To advance space-related endeavors to inspire, enable, and propel humanity.

In 1983, a small group of visionary leaders in Colorado Springs saw a need to establish an organization that could, in a non-partisan, objective and fair manner, bring together the various sectors of America's developing space community and serve as a credible source of information for a broad audience - from space professionals to the general public. The Space Foundation was founded March 21, 1983, as an IRS 501 (c)(3) organization "to foster, develop and promote, among the citizens of the United States of America and among other people of the world ... a greater understanding and awareness ... of the practical and theoretical utilization of space ... for the benefit of civilization and the fostering of peaceful and prosperous world."

The Space Foundation has become one of the world's premier nonprofit organizations supporting space activities, space professionals and education. The Foundation's education programs have touched teachers in all 50 U.S. states and Germany. It conducts two of the top three conferences for space professionals anywhere in the world today: the National Space Symposium and Strategic Space and Defense.

Space Technology Hall of Fame

One of the Space Foundation's programs is the "Space Technology Hall of Fame®" that works closely with NASA's technology transfer and public information offices, the Space Foundation each year recognizes individuals, organizations, and companies that develop innovative products based on space technology. These honorees are enshrined in the Space Technology Hall of Fame®. The ever-growing list of inductees showcases the significant contributions that space technology has made to improve the quality of life for everyone around the world.
