National Space Day
National Space Day is an American holiday celebrated each year on the first Friday in May. The Lockheed Martin Corporation created National Space Day as a one-off event in 1997, and it was later expanded to International Space Day in 2001 owing to its enormous popularity, after former astronaut and senator John Glenn. Since its inception, National Space Day has become a global STEM event, with celebrations taking place all over the world.
