NASA Kennedy Space Center Seeks Media Nominations for 2019 “Chroniclers”
NASA’s Kennedy Space Center is soliciting members of the working news media for names of former colleagues they deem worthy of designation as a space program “Chronicler” at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Past honorees, all of whose names are displayed on “The Chroniclers” wall in the KSC Press Site, include Walter Cronkite of CBS News, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, John Noble Wilford of the New York Times, and Reuters’ Mary Bubb, the first female reporter of the space program.
Submit nominations to Laura Aguiar at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make “Chroniclers Nomination(s)” the subject line.
Awardees will be selected on or about March 21, 2019, by a committee of working broadcasters, journalists, public relations professionals, and present and former representatives of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center communications office.
Selections will be announced on or about March 28, 2019.
Brass strips engraved with each awardee’s name will be added to “The Chroniclers” wall in the Kennedy Space Center Press Site during a ceremony at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 3, 2019. The following day, May 5, will be the 58th anniversary of Alan Shepard’s historic flight as America’s first human in space. Shepard awarded the first Chronicler honorees their certificates during a similar ceremony in 1995.
