National Astronaut Day

Updated: May 4

We are celebrating National Astronaut Day on May 5, 2021!


National Day Calendar provides us with this description: "On May 5th, 1961, Astronaut Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. became the first American in space aboard the Freedom 7 Space capsule. The brief suborbital flight lasted 15 minutes and reached a height of 116 miles into the atmosphere. It was a milestone achievement and a trailblazing example of heroic bravery."
