Six Logical Innovations employees working on the Communications, Outreach, Multimedia, Information and Technology (COMIT) contract at NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) were awarded an Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA) Office Team Award for their exceptional work on an EVA spacesuit display which was unveiled at Hobby Airport on April 10, 2019. COMIT exhibits team members Austin Simon, Juan (JJ) Sanchez, Randy Gordon, Kevin Witte, Belinda Pulido and graphic designer Cynthia (Cindy) Bush designed, constructed, and installed the display for EVA Office personnel which compares the Space Shuttle Program-era EVA suit to the modern International Space Station EVA suit.
The Recognition of Excellence Award states, “In appreciation of your support and contribution to the EVA Office in the fabrication of a beautifully created display case for two EMU spacesuits. Your professionalism and attention to detail will be admired by thousands of people traveling through Houston.” The award includes an EVA patch that was flown on Space Shuttle Atlantis, STS-125, May 11 – 24, 2009.
This display case was re-purposed from a cancelled project, providing the EVA Office an opportunity for a unique display while saving budget. After much effort working in coordination with both External Relations Office (ERO) and the EVA Office on potential locations, the team was able to secure a highly-trafficked space in Houston’s Hobby Airport through collaboration with the Houston Airport System. The display now resides in the corridor between security and the two domestic terminals where it will help spread EVA and NASA messaging to thousands of travelers each year, showcasing Houston as “Space City.”
An awards presentation was held at the COMIT Exhibits Shop before the display left the facility for installation. The event was attended by a large portion of EVA Office staff and COMIT staff, and the awards were personally presented by Chris Hansen, Chief of the EVA Office, who was very appreciative of the hard work and quality provided by our team. Mr. Hansen also recognized Logical Innovations employee, Larry Friend, who helped kick off this effort but unfortunately passed before the project’s completion.
Logical Innovations would like to sincerely thank and congratulate our team members for their outstanding work.
