National Space Day is celebrated on the first of May each year, and this year it’s May 6th. Created in 1997, the aim of this holiday was to promote career paths related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
And this space exploration exhibition that is now open in Vancouver honors the extraordinary achievements that have been made in these fields and takes you on an entertaining and educational adventure.
We’ve come so far in our understanding of the cosmos since we started exploring space less than 60 years ago. The wonders of science have led us to discovering fascinating things about ourselves, earth and the universe.
There are many ways you can observe and celebrate National Space Day. You can explore the wonders of the universe with 270º wall and floor-projected video and symphonic sound at Stargazer space exhibition. You can also watch your favorite space rocket launch on YouTube, like Apollo 11 or Space X or even go stargazing under the open sky.
Space exploration has helped us grow as a society and National Space Day is the perfect time to honor that.
