Celebrating National Astronaut Day the Entire Month of May!
The Space Foundation believes in Astronauts!! Help celebrate National Astronaut Day with a donation to the Space Foundation. Every $10 funds a student to experience a hands-on, interactive field trip at the Space Foundation Discovery Center.
National Astronaut Day is observed annually on May 5th. This observance celebrates Astronauts as true heroes, with a mission to inspire ALL to “reach for the stars” by sharing “out of this world” Astronaut stories and experiences.
On May 5th, 1961, Astronaut Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. became the first American in space aboard the Freedom 7 Space capsule. By sharing the incredible stories, experiences and perspective of actual Astronauts, National Astronaut Day will inspire us all to follow our dreams, including both future Astronauts and those who seek to keep their feet on the ground!
As the official online charity for National Astronaut Day, support the Space Foundation by donating today and inspiring the next generation of astronauts and space professionals! #WeBelieveInAstronauts 5.5.16
