'Maunakea World Park' Advanced by Hawaii Mayor Kim at ILOA Galaxy Forum Kona

- ILOA Endorses Mayor Harry Kim's Vision for Maunakea World Park -

News Release from ILOA

KAMUELA, Hawaii, April 13, 2017 -- Transcending vision for Maunakea Hawaii as beacon of peace and inclusive place of learning for the World is highlight of Mayor Harry Kim's feature presentation at International Lunar Observatory Association (ILOA) Galaxy Forum Hawaii 2017 at King Kamehameha Hotel in Kailua-Kona.

Kim outlined his hope that the Island's communities and its cosmopolitan people could come together with Aloha to support his vision of the pursuit of knowledge to make us a better people, and better stewards of the Earth. He said Maunakea World Park is an international symbol of nations working together in peace for the benefit of all. Paramount in the success of this quest is acknowledgement of the people of Hawaii and their immense contributions to exploration and the science of astronomy.

The Mayor, with explicit support from Hawaii Governor Ige, emphasizes the imperative for Maunakea to be both a living museum of the people of the First Nation of Hawaii and the center of discovery for humankind of the Universe.

Hawaii communities, educators, scientists and leaders have a challenging responsibility to support Maunakea World Park and Hawaii 21st Century Astronomy and Education, regardless of the contested Thirty Meter Telescope future. The whole world is looking to us, as the best place culturally, scientifically and geographically to launch future voyages of exploration to the farthest reaches of our cosmic ocean.

International Lunar Observatory Association based in Hawaii is advancing a new frontier - Astronomy from the Moon - transcending and independent from concerns on the mountain. The ILO-1 Mission could advance 21st Century astronomy, education and communication in Hawaii without moving a pebble on the summit of Maunakea. The International Lunar Observatory effort to establish an observatory on the surface of the Moon is being conducted with support from spacecraft provider Moon Express of Cape Canaveral Florida, USA, and primary instrument contractor Canadensys Aerospace of Ontario, Canada, as well as National Astronomical Observatories of China, India Space Research Organization, the newly formed Southeast Asia Principal Operating Partnership, and others.

ILOA sponsors Galaxy Forums around the world to advance Galaxy 21st Century science, education, enterprise in every class. There have been 75 Galaxy Forums, with over 300 presentations, held in 26 locations worldwide including: Hawaii, Silicon Valley, Canada, China, India, Southeast Asia, Japan, Europe, Africa, Chile, Brazil, Kansas and New York. Partner organizations in each of these location are being engaged to provide Scientific and Educational endorsements to enable fundraising for the mission.
