NASA’s Chroniclers Recognition Returns, Seeking 2023 Nominations
NASA’s Kennedy Space Center is asking members of the working news media to nominate former colleagues they deem worthy of designation as a space program “Chronicler” at the Florida spaceport.
Past honorees, whose names are displayed on “The Chroniclers” wall in the NASA News Center at Kennedy, 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.
Nominees must have covered the U.S. space program primarily from the Kennedy Space Center for 10 years or more and no longer be working full time in the field. Each nomination must include a brief paragraph with rationale for its submission. Please include a photograph of the nominee if available.
Deadline for submissions is Friday, March 10, 2023. Awardees will be selected on or about Thursday, March 16, 2023, by a committee of working journalists and present and former representatives of NASA Kennedy’s Office of Communication.
Selections will be announced on or about Tuesday, March 21, 2023. Engraved brass nameplates for each awardee will be added to “The Chroniclers” wall in the Kennedy Space Center Press Site in a ceremony at 10 a.m. on May 4, 2023.
