David had this to say on Facebook –
I must admit that I was ‘gobsmacked’ a couple of days ago to receive this email, which I can’t resist sharing with you!
“”I am extremely pleased to officially inform you that you have been selected to receive the American Astronautical Society’s “Ordway Award for Sustained Excellence in Spaceflight History” in the category of Artist. You and three others are the first recipients of this award, which was established last year after the death of Fred Ordway.
I look forward to hearing from you, and congratulations from all of us at AAS!
