HOUSTON — The Rotary National Award for Space Achievement Foundation will present Kay Bailey Hutchison with the National Space Trophy at a Houston gala today, honoring the former U.S. senator for her long-standing support of American space programs.

Foundation Chairman Rodolfo González cited Hutchison’s leadership in passing the 2010 NASA Authorization Act as a clear sign of her commitment to future human space exploration.

The annual awards ceremony, started by the Space Center Rotary Club in 1987, recognizes the contributions of space celebrities like noted astrophysicist and television personality Neil DeGrasse Tyson, as well as lower-profile individuals and teams within the industry.
