__ NASA is honored to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Hubble Space Telescope by awarding this award to the Hubble science team at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum for its continuing scientific contributions to our knowledge of the Universe. To celebrate, we’ve teamed up with The National Geographic Society and The Hubble Foundation to create a special edition Hubble Monthly magazine in celebration of the Hubble’s past accomplishments, and provide free shipping in the U.S., Canada and Mexico of any issue for the remainder of the year on subscription. We’re sure you’ll agree this will be a great celebration of one of our nation’s greatest scientific achievements! You can get all 26 issues of The Hubble Monthly here at the Smithsonian, including 10 issues featuring the Hubble’s Space Shuttle flight in 2001 and the historic Hubble Space Telescope’s first international observation missions of the Great Nebula in 2001 (2) and 2002 (4). __ NASA continues to be the world leader in science. So much so that it is the only agency in the United States, not to mention the world, with a “green” badge. NASA is an organization of more than 6,000 people at every level, all working together to ensure our ability to take human exploration of our Solar System and beyond. NASA provides critical science and engineering support to U.S. government missions by advancing technological innovations in space; by building partnerships between government and industry to support exploration; by assisting in NASA’s research and development programs; by protecting and advancing the safety and health of scientific instruments for use in the Nation’s space program; and by working toward national leadership in civil space technology, education, and international human spaceflight. www.nasa.gov __ NASA’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation was formed under the leadership of former NASA administrator Jim Green in 2005. NASA Commercial Space Transportation Program provides services for national security, business development and the general public through programs, projects and technologies that have the potential for commercial use of space. With the exception of some commercial missions to the International Space Station, commercial applications are limited only to those that do not require space transportation systems that have been proven or are technologically viable, or those that can be built and operated at prices that reduce mission risks.
