This is one in a series of articles featured in “The Sky Is Not the Limit,” a special tabloid produced for the University of Hawaiʻi Innovation Initiative by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Satellite launches and tracking, two new world-class telescopes, and a portable space habitat: Some of the most exciting projects in these islands are in areas of astronomy and space.

These projects bring hands-on learning opportunities and high-tech careers.

Read about how the University of Hawaiʻi is working to become the only university in the world with dedicated rocket-launch capability for its own satellites, the world’s largest solar and optical telescopes, and a project that focuses on new forms of food and food preparation for long-duration space missions in the article “Readying for Liftoff” by Jolyn Okimoto Rosa.
