Space Research Institute Honors Senator Hutchison with Pioneer Award
Date:3/19/2012

HOUSTON, March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In recognition of her ongoing support of the nation's human spaceflight program, U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison is the 2012 recipient of the National Space Biomedical Research Institute's (NSBRI) Pioneer Award.

The senior senator from Texas was honored today during the official opening of a new 16,400-square-foot Consolidated Research Facility that NSBRI shares with Baylor College of Medicine's Center for Space Medicine (CSM). The Facility includes office space, four laboratories, meeting rooms, and science and education collaboration areas.

NSBRI President and CEO Dr. Jeffrey P. Sutton said that Hutchison is deserving of the Pioneer Award because of her contributions to the advancement of human spaceflight, including space biomedical research.

"During her time on Capitol Hill, Senator Hutchison's leadership and commitment to strengthen the nation's human space exploration program has been exemplary," Sutton said. "Both NSBRI and CSM are grateful for her efforts on the Hill and for her support to make the Consolidated Research Facility a reality."

Hutchison, who has announced her retirement at the completion of her current term, was first elected to the Senate in 1993 and has developed the reputation of being a staunch supporter of NASA's human spaceflight program.

She currently serves as the Ranking Republican Member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, which oversees space exploration. She also held the chairmanship of the Science and Space Subcommittee of the Commerce Committee during the 109th Congress. In 2005, she was the primary author and sponsor of the NASA Authorization Act that designated the International Space Station as a National Laboratory.

In addition to the Pioneer Award ceremony, today's events featured demonstrations of NSBRI and CSM science, medical technology and education projects. All of the events were held in the
