uniphi space agency has announced the fifth annual National Astronaut Day, featuring a line-up of astronauts, musicians and entertainers, all participating in virtual, free, family-friendly events, activities and performances on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, the company said.
In addition to raising funds and awareness for seven charities, the campaign will include a social media campaign to thank the Frontline Superstars who have been working during the global pandemic, a collaboration with Giving Tuesday Now, and specifically with Giving Tuesday Kids (GTKids), who will be actively participating in different Astronaut activities throughout the day.
National Astronaut Day, on May 5th, will feature a wide range of virtual events that include Virtual Astronaut talks, Q&A´s, book readings & discussions, motivational videos, live music performances, Astronaut inspired music video & playlist premieres, model rocket launches, activities and more.
In keeping with the tradition of other Astronaut and Space related celebrations, May 5th was selected for this significant date in history in 1961 when Astronaut Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. became the First American in Space, aboard the Freedom 7 Space capsule. The brief suborbital flight, which lasted approximately 15 minutes and reached a height of 116 miles into the atmosphere, was a milestone achievement. This trailblazing example of heroic bravery and adventurous spirit is this essence of what National Astronaut Day is all about.
uniphi space agency, a division of uniphi good LLC, is the exclusive management agency for a diverse range of former astronauts, whose stories and experiences lend to book projects, speaking engagements, and brand collaborations.
