The legendary Dr. Charlie Pellerin presented to the Global STEM Classroom students via "LIVE" session run simultaneously for the students in Mexico and US on September 25, 2014. Dr. Pellerin is a legendary NASA’s Director, Astrophysics who led a multi-billion dollar program for a decade launching 12 satellites. NASA awarded him an Outstanding Leadership Medal for excellence. Charlie invented the Great Observatories Program garnering over $10B for space astrophysics. For this, the American Astronautical Society gave Charlie their highest award, the Space Flight Award. And for the Hubble Space Telescope and for its repair mission that fixed the telescope, NASA awarded him a second Outstanding Leadership Medal, an honor bestowed on less than 50 people (including astronauts) in NASA’s History. NASA then awarded him the Distinguished Service Medal, given “when the contribution is so extraordinary that other forms of recognition would be inadequate” for leadership of the Astrophysics Program. Thank you, Dr. Pellerin!
