NASA's Glenn Research Center was recently recognized by Ohio Governor Bob Taft as the 2001 Thomas Edison Award winner during a ceremony at the Center of Science and Industry, or COSI, in Columbus on October 11.
In accepting the award, Center Director Donald J. Campbell said, "Glenn Research Center has a rich legacy of achievements, and we are constantly creating ambitious new technologies that can be passed to our partners and the public for commercial application and, more importantly, to contribute to the quality of life here on Earth. What is more, Glenn's employees and its outreach programs help students become a part of the process of invention and discovery by sparking their interest in science and mathematics."
The Governor cited Glenn's partnerships with government, industry and academia to increase national wealth, safety and security, its development of critical technologies that address national priorities for safe and reliable aeronautics, aerospace and space applications and for "leading the way in making our state a high-tech leader in the 21st century."
The Edison Award recognizes an organization's global leadership in fostering or implementing innovation and in positively utilizing technology to impact its operation and the community.
