Discover NOAA's Pioneers: People and Technology!

2005 heritage week February 6 - 11, 2006

NOAA has a wealth of heritage resources that recall the agency's proud history and legacy of service to the nation. During NOAA Heritage Week, Feb. 6-11, 2006, artifacts representing that heritage were put on display at the agency's headquarters in Silver Spring, MD. NOAA also saluted eight pioneers, past and present, who have made significant contributions to our understanding of land, sea and sky.

The Treasures of NOAA's Ark exhibit was featured in the Silver Spring Gazette! Read the article to learn more about the event and to view additional photographs.
