The AIAA Houston Section proudly wishes to congratulate the Robonaut2 team on this exciting award. Robonaut2 continues to inspire the youth and adults around the world, and is a prime example of high technology and a strong model for how governmental research entities can partner with industry in a mutually beneficial manner. Their team has overcome great challenges and rose to the occasion in ways that us outside their team may never fully understand, but will strive to duplicate in the future. Congratulations, the AIAA Houston Section is very proud of their achievements and this wonderful recognition of their efforts.
Daniel Nobles, Chairman, AIAA Houston Section 2012-2013
