Welcome to the Pacific Regional Planetary Data Center (PRPDC) Home Page. The PRPDC is one of seventeen Regional Planetary Image Facilities (RPIF) around the world, archiving planetary data that serves the planetary research and education community throughout the Pacific.

       It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Dr. B. Ray Hawke. He died Saturday evening, January 24th, at Straub Hospital. He had been in failing health for some time and had been at Straub for about a week. His brother arrived in Honolulu shortly after B. Ray was hospitalized and says that B. Ray died peacefully in his sleep and didn't suffer.
       Dr. Hawke was the founding Director of NASA's Pacific Regional Planetary Data Center. A memorial service will be held in the PRPDC on Sunday, February 15th, at 3:00 p.m.

The family suggests that, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to
