This recognition was granted for exceptional software efforts and outstanding dedication in the discipline of software development and engineering which contribute to the success of the JSC mission.

R2 was launched up to the International Space Station (ISS) on 2/24/2011 as part of the STS-133 mission, fulfilling a 15 year dream to put a humanoid robot into space. The humanoid dexterous robot platform R2 was jointly developed by NASA and General Motors under a cooperative Space Act Agreement to develop a robotic assistant that can work alongside humans, whether they are astronauts in space or workers at GM manufacturing plants on Earth.
