NASA Honor Awards: Celebrating NASA Langley's Celebrities
On Tuesday afternoon at NASA's Langley Research Center, honor award recipients and their families walked across two red carpets with cameras flashing and filming as they entered the Reid Conference Center for the 2012 Honor Awards Ceremony.

Stars on the floors representing individuals and teams led them into the filled auditorium as Jeffrey Seaton, Director of Langley's Chief Information Office, welcomed guests and took some time out to honor Neil Armstrong.
"His family stated it well. They said he was a 'reluctant American hero who always believed he was just doing his job.' And that is probably true for many of the folks here today," Seaton said.
As the Armstrong family said in their statement on Armstrong's passing, he would want us "to be willing to explore and push the limits" of our abilities.
That is the mission, and this was the moment to recognize hundreds who work for, and with NASA Langley.
"When you think about Langley, it's not uncommon to hear about aeronautics research, wind tunnels, Orion splash tests, and all of the aerodynamic research you do for launch vehicles. Most recently, the huge successes with IRVE-3 (Inflatable Re-entry Vehicle Experiment), MSL EDL (Mars Science Laboratory Entry Descent and Landing) and MEDLI, (MSL EDL Instrumentation) the instrumentation suite you guys had on the bottom of MSL. And those are all really cool things, right?" said Robert Lightfoot, NASA's Associate Administrator, and keynote speaker for the event. "But today, we are here to talk about our most important thing, and that's our people. And that's what today is about. You are the source of our famous achievements. No hardware flies itself. No hardware designs itself. No hardware test itself without our folks.
"I really want you to listen to the citations closely, and think about the breadth of work that went in. It is amazing. Listen closely. Multiply what you hear today by 10 centers, and you'll get a good feel of what this agency accomplishes on a daily basis, and on an annual basis."
