Space Technology Hall of Fame Induction Virtual Ceremony

Date: Thursday, October 8, 2020

Location: US,

Space Foundation, a 501(c)(3) global space advocate for 37 years, today announced that its events celebrating World Space Week will include an induction ceremony honoring three legendary commercial adaptations of space technologies into the Space Technology Hall of Fame®.


In recognizing these new honorees, Space Foundation CEO Tom Zelibor shared, “Our class of 2020 inductees are no strangers to transforming and adapting to achieve success. Each of them has taken an existing space technology and adapted it to address everyday needs on Earth, and serves us on our best days, as well as our most challenging. Telemedicine, teleconferencing, and telecommunications — all are vital to the world’s security, commerce, and connectivity, and they are at the core of the three technologies being inducted this year. They stand as prime examples of how space technology improves life for everyone.”


The 2020 inductees are:

  • Audio Conference Bridge Technology
  • Apollo 70 Cardiac Care Monitoring System
  • Traveling-Wave Tube Amplifier


The virtual induction ceremony for these honorees will be held on October 8, at 11:00 a.m. MDT at


Founded in 1988, the Space Technology Hall of Fame recognizes the life-changing technologies emerging from global space programs, honors the scientists, engineers and innovators responsible, and communicates to the public the importance of these technologies as a return on investment in space exploration.


To date, dozens of technologies have been inducted, and hundreds of organizations and individuals have been honored for adapting space technologies into commercial products that improve our quality of life. Inductees are chosen through a rigorous selection process administered by panels of judges that include preeminent scientists, researchers, astronauts, civil, and commercial leaders, as well as individuals from across the space, technology, and global business communities.
