Jean-Jacques Dordain, Director General of the European Space Agency, will be the keynote speaker for the 26th Annual Dr. Wernher von Braun Memorial Dinner under the majestic Saturn V in the Davidson Center for Space Exploration at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center! Join us for an elegant evening as we celebrate the accomplishments of the team that first enabled twelve people to walk on the Moon and recognize individuals and groups who are making significant achievements in advancing space exploration today.


A reception will begin at 5:00 p.m. in the Gallery of the Davidson Center for Space Exploration. At 7:00 p.m. the Celebration continues with dinner, scholarship honorees, awards presentations and special guest speakers. Multiple sponsorship levels are available and we are pleased to announce that Teledyne Brown Engineering has agreed to serve as our Presenting Sponsor this year.


This is the National Space Club-Huntsville’s major fundraiser, which enables the club to conduct an extensive educational outreach program, providing college scholarships to area students and sponsoring various STEM and aerospace educational activities in the community. Since 1999, NSC has given more than $140,000 in scholarships to 60 area university students! Our STEM educational outreach has also impacted more than 17,000 students and aerospace enthusiasts! Established in 1988, the Memorial Dinner honors the memory of this great space pioneer by recognizing individuals and groups who personify his ideals and vision and have made significant achievements in advancing space exploration and/or have contributed to America's leadership in rocketry and astronautics.
