uniphi space agency Is Proud to Announce the Third-Annual National Astronaut Day™, May 5th, 2018
NEW YORK, April 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, on the International Day of Human Space Flight, uniphi space agency, a division of uniphi good LLC, is proud to announce the third annual National Astronaut Day, featuring Astronaut inspired STEAM and Space related activities, events and partners, to take place on Saturday, May 5th, 2018.
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.
