Proclamation: Aerospace in Hawaii Week

 

PROCLAMATION
The study of astronomy provides fascinating insights into the mysteries of our galaxy, the origin of the universe and many facets of our life here on Earth. 
The aerospace industry, which researches, designs, manufactures, operates and maintains vehicles for aviation and space exploration, is a diverse field. 
With commercial, industrial and military applications, aerospace plays an important role in innovation and development, forging new frontiers in scientific inquiry and discovery; providing valuable education and training in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM); advancing healthcare diagnostics and delivery systems; offering sustainable alternatives for clean energy; and enabling space-based observation and a deeper understanding of our planet. 
Hawaii’s longstanding connection with the wonders of space began with the islands’ original Polynesian inhabitants, who used stars to navigate the open ocean in search of new lands. 
Today, as a leader in space science and exploration, our state has world-class observatories atop Mauna Kea; deep space surveillance systems at Science City on Maui; globally-recognized planetary research at the University of Hawaii; and the world’s largest sea-air-space technology testing and training environment at the Pacific Missile Range on Kauai. 
In addition, Hawaii’s geographical location, combined with the research partnerships we share with our neighbors throughout the Asia-Pacific region, make our islands an ideal venue for collaboration in aerospace-related projects. 
With projects that could result in the development of next-generation aviation technology and commercial space transportation, Hawaii is a major contributor to the global aerospace enterprise. 
Aerospace in Hawaii Week, taking place Oct. 4 – 10, 2009, is a celebration of past achievements and future potential in aerospace. Events include astronaut presentations, teacher training programs, public exhibits and television documentaries throughout the state will underscore the inspirational value and continuing promise that aerospace holds for Hawaii.
THEREFORE, I, LINDA LINGLE, Governor, and I, James R. “Duke” Aiona, Jr., Lieutenant Governor of the State of Hawaii, do hereby proclaim Oct. 4 – 10, 2009 as AEROSPACE IN HAWAII WEEK and encourage our residents to learn more about this exciting field, which will continue to benefit us for years to come. 
DONE at the State Capitol, in the Executive Chambers, Honolulu, State of Hawaii, this second day of October 2009.
