The Right Stuff

Technology Director "exemplifies the courage, integrity, and excellence of early space explorers"

Technology Director Marlon Henry was honored today with the Right Stuff award at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

The Right Stuff award is the most prestigious individual award given at the end of the week-long Space Camp, an immersive experience in science, technology, engineering and math where participants train as astronauts in low-gravity environments, design and construct a futuristic Martian colony, launch on simulated missions to the International Space Station.

It is given to the outstanding camper who best exemplifies the courage, integrity, and excellence of early space explorers and test pilots. "This individual really boosts their team’s experience while they are here at camp. They are an enthusiastic individual who is excited about learning and is excited to be here this week."

Sounds like our Mr. Henry.

Mr. Henry had celebrated a milestone birthday recently, and his family made a dream of his come true by sending him to Space Camp. While we all missed him this week, we are proud of how he represented Gordon this week, and we can't wait to hear about his adventures when he returns next week.
