December 12, 1929: Langley medals go to Adm. Richard E. Byrd for his flight over both poles and posthumously to Charles M. Manly for his pioneer development of airplane engines. The Smithsonian Institution presents the medals "for especially meritorious investigations in connection with the science of aerodromics and its application to aviation." Established in 1908, the award has come to mean the greatest achievement in the science of aeronautics and astronautics.
