May 6th Space Day

Lockheed Martin created the first space day back in 1997, you can kinda understand why considering the source. John Glenn made it an International Day in 2001, again we can easily see his interest in the subject. That said, space has held the imagination of people since time began and as it stated in “Star Trek”, it is the final frontier. We will ever begin to colonize space? It’s sort looking like we might, so who knows, maybe your future home could be on the Moon! Space Day is always celebrated the 1st Friday in May.

How to celebrate – Study space. Study the space program. Book a flight into space.

November 28th Red Planet Day

Today commemorates the Spacecraft Mariner 4 closing to within 6,118 miles of Mars, a planet named after the mythical War of God, Ares. The date was, November 28th, 1964. The mission took 228 days and sent back photos of the Red Planet, red because of the filter on the lens of the camera on the spacecraft.

The temperatures on Mars run from -207 degrees F to +81. Not exactly the temperatures one might like to spend the winters in.  It has two moons, Deimos and Phobos and it requires 687 days to circle the sun.

Mars is often visible to the naked eye from earth and as such many have dreamed and had fantasies about Mars. However it is just a planet, too cold to support life and of little use to those on earth.

Perhaps there may be life below the surface, we will not know until we set foot on the planet. If this is what you are waiting for, you might have to wait a while since we no longer have a space program pf our own. Since profits now lead the program from the private sector, there seems little worth landing on Mars for.

Space, the final frontier. Who knows what we may find out there, what may save our planet from destruction. We know little of what may be out there but logic dictates there is very little there.

How to celebrate  – Look in the nigh sky for Mars. Study the photos sent back by Mariner 4. Learn more about Ares.
