National Space Day

National Space Day

May 3 is National Space Day.

What is there that’s more interesting than space? Never-ending, always expanding, full of stars and suns and planets and untold mysteries – as long as we live, we won’t know all the secrets that this great vacuum holds. But that doesn’t stop us trying to learn absolutely everything we can about it!

On the first Friday of each May, space boffins and science fans alike celebrate National Space Day with a dedicated day of observance to everything in the great beyond. Because there’s so much out there in space, you can be sure that there’s always going to be enough to celebrate on this day as every year comes!

With this in mind, grab your telescope, your model rockets, and your dehydrated astronaut meals and take an adventure into the heavens and beyond, where the Earth becomes the Pale Blue Dot, and the rest of the infinite universe stretches further than your mind could ever imagine. This is National Space Day and everything you need to know about how to celebrate it.
