Awarding Failure

Last Friday revealed the winner of the 52nd annual Dr. Robert H. Goddard Trophy at the requisite Memorial Dinner. Coming soon is the Rotary National Award for Space Achievement (RNASA) Stellar Award. No doubt, someday in the near future, UAH will offer an award to professors willing to take their fifth highest offers to come there and teach.

Suffice to say, there are a lot of red faces on awards committees this year.

I guess if it is an annual event, someone has to be awarded.

Since there was not a cash award available, Elan Musk didn't deem it worthy to be in the running. Maybe he needs to launch something beyond his own metal first...
