Space Camp® Hall of Fame

The U.S. Space & Rocket Center® is pleased to announce the 2016 class of the Space Camp® Hall of Fame. These three exceptional individuals have achieved professional success in the areas of expertise. They are: Jason Hopkins, an aerospace engineer and business development specialist at Masten Space Systems and a former NASA Fellow; Dr. Amy Kaminisky, Senior Policy Advisor, Office of the Chief Scientist, NASA; and George Whitesides, CEO of Virgin Galactic and The Spaceship Company.

The Space Camp Hall of Fame includes graduates and former employees who have distinguished themselves in their respective careers and friends of the Center who have made considerable contributions of personal time, effort or resources to further the goals of the Space Camp programs. Members exhibit leadership among the globe-spanning Space Camp alumni community of almost 750,000, providing guidance and encouragement for alumni to continue to support the Space Camp mission.

This year's inductees join the ranks of 35 Hall of Fame members, including Dr. Wernher von Braun and astronauts Dottie Metcalf-Lindenburger and Samantha Cristoforetti, the first two Space Camp graduates to fly in space.

The 2016 class will be inducted at the Hall of Fame Ceremony and Dinner, to be held July 16, 2016, at the Rocket Center’s Davidson Center for Space Exploration. Miles O’Brien, a longtime space journalist and the science correspondent for the PBS NewsHour, is the guest speaker for the evening.
