B-roll of His Majesty Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden's visit to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center is honored to welcome His Majesty Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden on Wednesday, May 3. As part of a royal technology mission, His Majesty will be accompanied by His Excellency Björn Lyrvall – Swedish ambassador to the United States – as well as members of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences.
Founded in 1919 by His Majesty’s great-grandfather King Gustaf V, the academy is the oldest of its kind in the world, promoting contact and exchange among businesses, research institutions and government organizations in Sweden and abroad.
Since ascending to the throne in 1973, His Majesty has been an avid supporter of science and engineering, serving as the lead patron for several organizations – including the academy – across Sweden. At his request, the academy has organized the overseas royal technology mission every one to two years since 1984 to study the science and business climate of other nations. This year, the academy’s leadership has chosen to visit the United States, and we are proud they have selected Goddard as one of the destinations.
