Massey Award

The COSPAR Massey Award honors the memory of Sir Harrie Massey, FRS, past Physical Secretary of the Royal Society and past member of the COSPAR Bureau. This award recognizes outstanding contributions to the development of space research, interpreted in the widest sense, in which a leadership role is of particular importance. The award is open to candidates from any country.  From 2018 the IAU has named an asteroid for each COSPAR award recipient.  The number of the asteroid appears below in parentheses.
