Join us Saturday evening for the 2015 NewSpace Awards Gala

This black-tie event serves to honor six recipients of top awards for achievements in our field and to celebrate the promising future of the NewSpace Industry with the Space Frontier Foundation.

The evening will begin with drinks and socializing at the Pre-Gala Reception & Advocates Pinning Ceremony, accompanied by live jazz entertainment. The second part of the evening features a decadent three-course meal, and the pinnacle awards ceremony. Reception begins at 6:30pm in the Sierra Ballroom and the dinner at 7:30pm in the Cascade Ballroom at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Jose. As this is a formal event, evening wear is recommended.

Our Guest of Honor at the Gala will be Andy Weir, author of best-selling novel The Martian, accepting the award for "Best Presentation of Space". All Gala attendees will receive a signed copy of The Martian, a story that convinces everyone who reads it of the near-future possibility of human exploration of Mars while reminding us of the boldness of this undertaking and its grave challenges. The movie adaption of Weir’s book, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig and Jeff Daniels, is scheduled to debut on November 25, 2015.

Come and enjoy the evening with the most influential individuals in the industry and toast to the future of the NewSpace Industry!
