Thank you for joining us at the 2023 Astronaut Lacy Veach Day of Discovery. We hope to see you next year in 2024!

"You can never believe the beauty of island Earth until you see it in its entirety from space... the best place to think about the fate of our planet is right here in the islands."

-Charles Lacy Veach, Astronaut

This is the celebration and special day honoring the life and legacy of Charles Lacy Veach, who grew up in Honolulu with an interest in science, had a distinguished career in the United States Air Force, and went on to fly two Space Shuttle missions.
