Arvydas J. Kliore, Edward J. Smith, and John H. Wolfe were also nominated for the Exceptional Scientific Achievement Award. However, since NASA makes only one such award to an individual, these principal investigators did not receive the award again for their work on Pioneer 10. John A. Simpson was nominated for his work in connection with both Pioneer 10 and Mariner 10 and elected to accept the award for Mariner.
