AWARD-WINNING DESIGN: OAUX Senior Director George Hackman  was in New York in early November on behalf of the OAUX team to accept an award from Fast Company. Asteroid Explorers, a tool developed for NASA’s Minor Planet Center, received an honorable mention in the Social Good category in Fast Company’s 2016 Innovation by Design Awards.

Fast Company said in its announcement about the award: “This year’s submissions were as strong as any we’ve ever seen, with more than 1,700 entries from 41 different countries. In the eyes of our esteemed judges, your work was among the best of the best.” This year’s Innovation by Design winners are featured online. NASA also published a press release in September when the Asteroid Explorer added the Daily Minor Planet, a daily news bulletin in your email inbox with the latest on asteroids. And Raymond Xie, a member of the AppsLab, the OAUX emerging technologies team, who was involved with the project, also wrote about his experience in his post, Oracle Volunteers and the Daily Minor Planet.
