NEW YORK, April 13 /PRNewswire/ — Aviation Week & Space Technology honored its Laureate Award recipients at a black tie event on April 7, 2006, at The National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Washington Dulles International Airport.
The Laurels were conceived 49 years ago to recognize the extraordinary accomplishments of individuals and teams in aviation, aerospace and defense. Today, this gala is the industry’s premier event, attracting scores of aerospace pioneers and thought leaders from around the world. The 2006 Laureate Award winners include:

* The Cassini/Huygens spacecraft team, for the landing of the European
Space Agency Huygens probe on Saturn’s moon Titan, and for the science
return and poetic images from NASA’s Cassini orbiter that will continue
for many years. Dennis Matson, the project scientist at NASA’s Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, and Jean-Pierre Lebreton, European Space Agency’s
project scientist and mission manager, have strived since the beginning
to create, protect and operate the Cassini/Huygens mission, and
represent the larger team that made this two-decade international
project possible.
