Galaxy Gala 2015

Galaxy Gala at the Hilton Americas Houston

Thank you to all of our supporters and donors who made the Galaxy Gala a huge success. The inaugural gala raised more than $1 million for the Manned Space Flight Education Foundation Inc. on May 15, 2015. The Galaxy Gala was a stellar evening led by chairs Alice and Keith Mosing.

The new exhibit, Independence Plaza, features a high-fidelity space shuttle replica, the Independence, mounted on the historic NASA 905 shuttle carrier aircraft. Only at Space Center Houston can visitors go inside both the shuttle and the airplane. Most importantly, the shuttle complex and surrounding exhibits expand and enhance Space Center Houston’s award-winning educational programs that motivate students to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.

Galaxy Gala Donors

We thank our Galaxy Gala donors for their generosity in helping preserve this historic shuttle carrier aircraft and shuttle replica Independence. The support of our donors will enable Space Center Houston to inspire all generations through the wonders of space exploration.
