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.
September 8th Star Trek Day
Gene Roddenberry created Star Trek using an international cast when international relationships were at an all-time high stress level. The series began in 1966 and when American and Russian relations were near an all time low.
Yet while the Starship Enterprise was an American vessel it was crewed by international characters from all over the world. (And in some from beyond the world) The enemies were creates from other planets where the human race, as well as other races, had to work together to solve problems.
How to celebrate – Pretend to be your favorite Star Trek Character. Binge watch Star Trek. See how many nationalities you can find in a single Star Trek episode.
