The National Space Club will be hosting the 58th Annual Robert H. Goddard Memorial Dinner on Friday, March 13, 2015 at the Hilton Washington Hotel at 6:30 pm.
The first Goddard Dinner was celebrated in 1958, and is held each year near the anniversary of Dr. Goddard's first successful flight of a liquid-fueled rocket. The event brings together nearly 2,000 members of the government, industry and educational space community. Awards are presented to a number of outstanding individuals for accomplishments in spaceflight, engineering, science, management and education. The premiere award, the Goddard Trophy, is presented to an individual, group or program deemed to have made the most significant contribution to space activity in the previous year.
