Annual Awards
The Space Frontier Foundation gives annual awards to people, companies and institutions who have made, in the Foundation's view, the greatest contributions that year to opening the frontier.
Categories include Service to the Frontier, Vision to Reality, Vision of the Future and Best Presentation of Space. A special award, The Founder's Award, is given each year to honor a space activist for overall and long-term achievement.
The award, pictured at right, is a polished marble obelisk emerging from rough rock. On the face of the obelisk is the Foundation's logo, the category of the award, and the recipient's name and affiliation. The awards are presented at the Foundation's annual conference each year, during the awards banquet.

The Frontier Enabling Test
Our definition of a "frontier enabling" technology or policy is one which has as its effect the acceleration of the creation of low cost access to the space frontier for private citizens and companies, enables or accelerates our use of space resources, and/or accelerates the rate at which wealth can be generated in space. In other words, is the project or policy going to provide a return on the national investment, if we define "return" to be the economically sustainable human habitation of space?
