The Space Foundation continues to line up an impressive list of industry heavy weights slated to speak at the 26th Annual Space Symposium at The Broadmoor, April 12-15.

Last week, the organization announced Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy would be honored on April 15 by the Space Foundation as the winner of the 2010 Douglas S. Morrow Public Outreach Award. The award will be presented on the final evening of the 26th National Space Symposium at the Space Technology Hall of Fame Dinner, sponsored by Lockheed Martin, where he will also appear as the featured speaker.

In addition, Dennis Mullenburg, executive vice president of The Boeing Co. and president and chief executive officer of Boeing’s Defense, Space and Security unit, will address today’s commercial space industry. Mullenburg will serve as the primary spokesperson for industry viewpoints and issues during the four-day conference, considered the premier gathering of the global space community.

Both men join a roster of speakers from military, intelligence, civil, commercial and academic space organizations throughout the world.
