On January 21, 2020, a Symposium on Earth Science and Applications from Space took place at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC to pay tribute to the career of Michael Freilich. As director of the Earth Science Division at NASA Headquarters from 2006–2019—and throughout nearly 40 years of ocean research—Freilich helped train and inspire the next generation of scientists and scientific leaders. Freilich, his wife, and other family members were in attendance.
