The Order of Magellan is to be held in Naples on Friday, March 22, 2019
Plan to attend this very special evening as we host the international community of Circumnavigators.
The Order of Magellan is the highest honor of the Circumnavigators Club. The cover of our Log magazine depicts the upcoming award for Astronaut Robert Crippen, a member of the Space Hall of Fame and the holder of many impressive space exploits.
The event will be held on March 22 in Naples, Florida. This will be only the second time that the event leaves New York City.
Capt. Crippen made four journeys into space, including command of the Challenger in 1983 that included Sally Ride, the first woman in space. Dr. Ride was the Magellan honoree in 1985. Among his many awards and honors are the Congressional Space Medal of Honor, National Geographic’s Hubbard Medal, and the National Aviation Hall of Fame. Also, Robert is one of our own-a long-time member of the Circumnavigators Palm Beach Chapter. Since 1961, there have been 37 Magellan Awardees, including five astronauts. The Club is very pleased to bestow this honor on Robert Crippen.
