CAMPAIGN INCLUDES STUDENT ART CONTEST, READING & CHARITY CAMPAIGN, MUSIC COLLABORATIONS TO CELEBRATE ASTRONAUTS AND MORE. www.NationalAstronautDay.com #NationalAstronautDay #WeBelieveInAstronauts #RISE">

In keeping with the tradition of other Astronaut and Space related celebrations, May 5th was selected for this significant date in history in 1961 when Astronaut Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. became the First American in Space, aboard the Freedom 7 Space capsule.  The brief suborbital flight, which lasted approximately 15 minutes and reached a height of 116 miles into the atmosphere, was a milestone achievement. This trailblazing example of heroic bravery and adventurous spirit is this essence of what National Astronaut Day is all about.  This year, we also pay tribute to the Astronauts of the Apollo Program, and the remarkable achievement of the Apollo 11 lunar landing that still leaves a lasting legacy 50 years later.

  • Enter the Student Art Contest to Design a "Special Mission" Astronaut Patch
