The Langley Research Center NACA and NASA Hall of Honor

The Langley Alumni Association and the NASA Langley Research Center have partnered to develop a Hall of Honor (HoH), which provides a means by which distinguished Langley Research Center researchers and managers could be honored for their exemplary careers and contributions to NACA, NASA and the nation at large in the pursuit of revolutionary scientific understanding and technological progress on the frontiers of aerospace sciences. The HoH also provides a focused opportunity for the local aerospace community to reflect on the contributions of these notable individuals who made enduring impacts on aerospace technologies. A Langley Research Center NACA and NASA Hall of Honor (HoH Committee) conducts the process of receiving nominations for and making selection of Honorees to be inducted into the Hall of Honor. This process is conducted by the HoH Committee in concert with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Langley Research Center and the Langley Alumni Association dated January 11, 2016

The culmination of these early efforts was the Class of 2015 Hall of Honor Induction Ceremony held at NASA Langley on August 13, 2015 in which 19 inductees were honored. Details of the ceremony are shown on the following LaRC locations:
