About the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame®

The Mercury 7 astronauts envisioned a place where the accomplishments of astronauts could be celebrated and showcased to the public. This vision led to the creation of the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame® in 1990, with the members of the Mercury 7 inducted as the inaugural class. Every year, a new class of astronauts who have pushed the boundaries of space exploration take their place in the Hall and are honored at the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame® Induction Ceremony & Gala.

On Saturday, November 13, the 2020 Inductees receive the ultimate honor of becoming the newest class to enter the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame®, with an induction ceremony taking place at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, and a gala held later that evening, at the Apollo/Saturn V Center. Dining under a massive Saturn V rocket, guests will have a front row seat as we raise a glass to the astounding accomplishments of Michael Lopez-Alegria, Pamela Melroy and Scott Kelly.
