Here are the champions for 2020:

Government Mission of the Year- the Winner was MARS 2020

Rarely has a spaceship have a designation that was more fitting. By announcing the winning entry: Perseverance, NASA culminated a student contest in March to name the rover operating on Mars 2020 mission. In the words of the seventh-grader who suggested it, and one fundamental to discovering the red planet, the name was supposed to reflect the most valuable human quality.

Commercial Mission of the Year- the Winner was SPACEX DEMO-2

SpaceX executives would refer to one feature of the Dragon spacecraft’s architecture that pointed to their potential aspirations from the initial periods of NASA’s commercial cargo program: a porthole. Since there will be no one inside to peer into it, a cargo spaceship did not need a porthole. Nevertheless, SpaceX dreamed a day when the Dragon would bring individuals who would like to look out the window.

Government Leader of the Year- the Winner was KATHY LEUDERS 

In 1992, she began working at NASA Agency on shuttle projects as well as space station projects. In 2013, at a crucial moment, she was appointed as NASA’s head of the commercial crew initiative: the agency was planning to pick businesses who will earn billions of dollars to execute the production of spacecraft to carry space explorers to as well as from the station.

Large Company of the Year- the Winner was NORTHROP GRUMMAN

A perfect illustration: Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent, commonly abbreviated as (GBSD). A two-horse competition between Northrop Grumman as well as Boeing was expected to be the vast Pentagon initiative to substitute the country’s tactical nuclear weapons. But by 2019 June, due in huge part to its purchase of the Orbital ATK, the country’s largest producer of the dependable rocket engines, Northrop would have the field to itself. In 2019 July, Boeing fell out of the market, claiming it could not contend credibly against Northrop’s cost advantage as the freshly leading team in reliable rocket motors.
