Please chip off a piece of the ...Just kidding! Just being able to part of the team is reward enough. I still stare in admiration at my "NH @ Jupiter anniversary" poster. I expect to be invited to the Pluto flyby party! smile.gif

The third award of the six, and the second Opportunity Award....

http://www.umsfawards.com/?p=83

Examples of exceptional public engagement are rare in Europe. But one small project has shone brighter than anything else, the reactivation of the Visual Monitoring Camera onboard Mars Express, and the interaction between the MEX team and the public that has followed. For that reason, Thomas Ormston and the Mars Express VMC planning team have been awarded the second UMSF Opportunity Award!

The Third Opportunity Award goes to Alice Wessen and the Cassini Outreach Team, for taking the public to Saturn with the release of raw images, and eight inspiring rounds of the Cassini ‘Scientist for a day’ program.

Two more to go yet ( and I can hear the cogs of imagination and forecasting occurring in each and every mind reading this thread )

The announcements should automatically appear on the site at 1200UT (they are pre-scheduled blog entires) - and then I tweet a few minutes later.

The Second Spirit Award goes to Veronica McGregor, the voice of @MarsPhoenix :

An agency as large and bureaucratic as NASA will always be resistant to things that are new, unknown or perhaps perceived as ‘trendy’. It is for pushing through those misconceptions and using these new means of communication so effectively, that Veronica McGregor wins the 2nd UMSF Spirit Award, for giving a little spacecraft a big voice and kick starting the new media revolution at JPL and NASA.

Just one more to go tomorrow!

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Wow! I was so happy to read that Alice and the Cassini team were recognized with their award and today I'm blown away to see you've thought of me, too.
I think all the members of UMSF deserve a round of applause for your advocacy and support. You inspire us!
Thank you!

I wanted to wait for all the winners to be announced before adding my congratulations, especially to those whose work may be less high-profile, but which is no less welcome for that! smile.gif
