The Rotary National Award for Space Achievement Foundation presented a prestigious Stellar Team Award to NASA’s Commercial Crew Transportation Capability source evaluation board in recognition of the innovative strategies, careful work, thorough preparation and long hours spent evaluating bids for America’s next crew transportation systems.
Maria Collura accepted the award from astronaut Randy Bresnik on behalf of the team during a black-tie gala in Houston on April 24. The foundation issues awards annually to note the work of the “unsung heroes” in the space field. “This award is truly about the amazing team effort,” Collura said. “I was just blessed enough to lead the team and accept their award.”
