Dan Hoy is a retired quality and process management leader who has had a passion for space and exploration for over 50 years, starting as a mesmerized ten year old glued to the television screen watching the Gemini and then Apollo NASA missions.
Over the years, he has established a significant collection of space and space exploration books and other resources from the early days of rocketry to the present day.
Dan currently lives in Clive and volunteers with the Science Center of Iowa in Des Moines. This relationship provides a great opportunity for him to partner with the organization in reaching out to central Iowa to establish, build, and sustain interest in space and space exploration as a Solar System Ambassador.
