Emmy Award Winning Production Features NASA Glenn

A NASA video program about how new methods of power and propulsion are being developed and featuring employees and facilities at NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, recently was recognized with a regional Emmy Award.

Kevin Krigsvold and Michael Bibbo, producers of NASA X, won the award for “Power and Propulsion” in the category of Informational/Instructional—Program/Special.  The prestigious award was part of a ceremony held June 14 at the Fillmore Silver Spring by The National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

NASA X, a television program and vodcast that highlights new and emerging technologies at NASA, operates out of NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.

One segment about solar electric propulsion took viewers on a tour of Glenn’s Plum Brook Station’s Space Power Facility, explained how fuel cells work and described the intricacies of one type of solar electric propulsion, the Hall thruster. These technologies may one day help NASA send humans to asteroids, Mars and beyond.

The NASA X program, which showcased the work of the NASA Space Technology Mission Directorate's Game Changing Development Program, also included a number of interviews at Glenn and Langley.

Featured guests include Langley’s Chuck Taylor, principal investigator, In-Space Propulsion, as well as Glenn’s Carolyn Mercer, project manager, Solar Power Element; Dan Herman, researcher, Electric Propulsion; Meg Nazario, project manager, Solar Electric Propulsion; John Lytle, project manager, Advanced Space Power; and Brianne DeMattia, researcher, Electrochemistry.

The award honors excellence in television production in various sectors of the television industry, including entertainment programming, news and documentary shows and sports programming. The awards are presented in various area-specific ceremonies held annually throughout the year.
