Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Distinguished Public Service Medal will be presented to Patrick Wiggins.

Citation: For superior individual dedication to community and scientific engagement as NASA's prolific Solar System Ambassador.

Wiggins joined the NASA Solar Systems Ambassadors Program in January 2002 just before retiring from the Hansen Planetarium following 26 years of service.

Over the last 12 years, he has conducted more than 1,050 events, averaging 88 events per year, well over the four events per year that are asked of volunteers. With a background in astronomy and a solid reputation for public engagement, Wiggins tirelessly travels across the state of Utah performing outreach, giving educational talks to students, and regularly providing updates on NASA's space exploratory efforts to local media. His superior dedication and volunteer efforts have built a positive reputation for not only the SSA Program but also NASA.
