Aviation Week & Space Technology has once again honored NASA's Stardust mission with a nomination for Aviation Week's Laureate Awards. This award was conceived 50 years ago to recognize the extraordinary achievements of individuals and teams in aerospace, aviation and defense. Specifically being recognized are Don Brownlee, principal investigator from the University of Washington; Tom Duxbury, project manager at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory; Peter Tsou, JPL deputy principal investigator, who conceived the Stardust aerogel sampling system; and Joe Vellinga, Lockheed Martin program manager, who led the industrial team.

Aviation Week will honor all of the Laureate candidates at an awards ceremony at the National Air and Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center outside Washington, D.C., on March 20, 2007.
