May 5th is Space Day

 

Blast Off!On May 25, 1961, President John F. Kennedy challenged the brightest minds in America to land a man on the Moon and return him safely. That speech and resulting space program inspired many of our nation's youth to pursue science and math careers.

 

What is Space Day

Since its launch in 1997, the Space Day educational initiative, which takes place on the first Thursday of each May, has evolved into a massive grassroots effort dedicated to the extraordinary achievements, benefits and opportunities in the exploration and use of space. The ultimate goal is to promote math, science, technology and engineering education by nurturing young peoples' enthusiasm for the wonders of the universe and inspiring them to continue the stellar work of today's space explorers.

The Live Webcast

The National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center and the Fairfax Network present a special Electronic Lesson to celebrate Space Day 2005—Return to the Moon. This special satellite broadcast, for students in grades 4-8, will air from 12-12:45 p.m. (EDT).
