NATIONAL SPACE DAY – First Friday in May

National Space Day - First Friday in May


National Space Day is observed annually on the first Friday in May.  This day is dedicated to the extraordinary achievements, benefits and opportunities in the exploration and use of space.  The goal of National Space Day is to promote math, science, technology and engineering education in young people to inspire them to pursue a career in science, especially a career in space-related jobs.


Teachers, students,  space-related organizations, groups and agencies hold celebrations, demonstrations and educational programs each year on National Space Day.  National Space Day has grown so fast in recent years, the day is celebrated worldwide as International Space Day.

National Space Day was originally created in 1997 by the Lockheed Martin Corporation as a one day event.  In 2001, due to it’s extreme popularity, former astronaut and Senator John Glenn expanded Space Day to International Space Day.
