The Silver Snoopy Award
On March 25, 2003 I received my Silver Snoopy award. This unexpected
honor was for my efforts during the SM3B Hubble Servicing Mission.
It is awarded personally by a member of the astronuat crew. I could only
have received this award by working on the Hubble Space Telescope
due to the tremendous team of coworkers that I have.
This surprise award is in the form of a Sterling Silver pin and certificate. It was pinned by Astronaut John Grunsfeld,
who installed the NCS radiator and the ARUBA. The pin shows Snoopy in a space suit
(picture at the top of this web page).
