John L. “Jack” Swigert, Jr., Award for Space Exploration:
Presented to NASA JPL for the InSight-Mars Cube One joint project flight teams which launched the first mission to directly study the deep interior of Mars: its crust, mantle and core. The Mars Cube One, launching the first test of revolutionary miniaturized CubeSat technology at another planet, provides researchers with data that will offer new capabilities to future missions. This joint mission provides a comprehensive understanding of how rocky planets have formed and evolved, including their tectonic activity that will enable continued exploration of our solar system.
Award accepted by Dr. Michael Watkins on behalf of NASA JPL.
