2015 Space Camp Hall of Fame Inductees


This Year’s Space Camp Hall of Fame Inductees

This month, the Space Camp Hall of Fame welcomes four new members. All four inductees are Camp alumni who have gone on to achieve extraordinary success in their chosen fields, including, for the first time, one who is a star in the performing arts world. The four new HOF members are: Elizabeth Bierman, Senior Project Engineer at Honeywell Aerospace and national President of the Society of Women Engineers; Bobak Ferdowsi, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory Flight Engineer; Dr. Kate Rubins, a NASA astronaut scheduled to fly to the International Space Station in 2016; and Susanna Phillips, Metropolitan Opera star. Elizabeth Bierman is a proven leader who guides initiatives through Honeywell’s project engineering council. Bobak Ferdowsi served on the Cassini-Huygens and Mars Science Laboratory (Curiosity) missions, with even President Obama commenting on the popularity of the NASA “Mohawk Guy”. Dr. Kate Rubins has a Ph.D. in Cancer Biology and was part of the team that developed the first model of smallpox infection. Finally, Susanna Phillips is a globally recognized opera star who has sung a host of major roles at the Metropolitan Opera in New York and stages around the world, and is a co-founder of the Twickenham, a music festival held annually in Huntsville. The Hall of Fame includes graduates and former employees of the US Space and Rocket Center who have distinguished themselves in their respective careers and friends of the Center who have made major contributions of personal time, effort, or resources to further the goals of Camp programs. As Center CEO, Dr. Deborah Barnhart, has said: “This year’s Space Camp Hall of Fame class demonstrates a diverse mix of passion, imagination, determination and intelligence.” You never know where the experiences and lessons of Camp may lead. 11219474_10153553436139728_1907536065224430143_o11045495_899037903472620_6444909181734298486_o1796025_10153589978584728_4853850472410338056_o11406370_10153556355049728_6114153902924070157_o waves
