Happy International Space Day
Did you know that National Space Day was created in 1997 by the Lockheed Martin Corporation? Thanks to former astronaut and Senator John Glenn, it was later renamed International Space Day in 2001, widening its celebration on an international scape.
Held annually on the first Friday in May, this one-day event is dedicated to the amazing achievements, benefits and opportunities in the exploration and use of space. It also promotes the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education among young people. It encourages them to pursue a career in science, especially one related to space.
In celebration of International Space Day on May 3, 2019, SpaceChain has created an infographic to commemorate the history of satellite technology. And, of course, we’re part of it!
