International Lunar Observatory Association (ILOA) November 2012 Galaxy First Light Imaging & Exploration Steve Durst, Joseph Sulla, Phil Merrell ILOA / Space Age Publishing Company Hawai`i and California, USA  Galactic / Inter-Stellar  Earth – Moon / Inter-Global  Hawaiian  Multi-Functional
  3. 3. With four active lunar missions anda robust 21st Century Education program, ILOA continues to establish its position as a leader in the field of Observation / Astronomy from the Moon.

  5. 5. These four missions will allow the International ILOA Science Team - and through the Galaxy Forum,schools, teachers, and students - the opportunity to observe the Galaxy / Stars, local lunar environment and Earth with various wavelengths and from various lunar locations... helping to secure Hawai`i leadership in Astronomy for the next 100 years.

  11. 11. Why Galaxy Education, Consciousness &Awareness Are Important for the 21st Century: General Education – for primary, secondary higher, andhighest education: Knowledge, understanding of humanity’splace in the Universe – our Milky Way Galaxy occupies a mid-position domain between Solar System finiteness and Cosmosinfinity Higher Education: Astrophysics / Astronomy – Galaxystudies internationally are of increasing interest and value;study of our local stellar neighborhood for familiarity; center /central 10 parsecs with supermassive black hole is mostdynamic region of Milky Way History of Human Civilization / ArchaeoastronomyNASA, World Space Agencies – 21st Century Program andPolicy Development Advance through Galaxy understandingGalacticity – may be as important for the 21st Century, as isRelativity to 20th
