National Moon Day — 20 July

When Neil Armstrong stepped down onto the moon’s cratered surface with the words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind, ” every nation on  earth seemed to breathe a collective sigh of relief.  National Moon Day celebrates not only the historic lunar landing on  July 20, 1969, but the day also reminds us of the uphill slog to get the space program literally off the ground. On National Moon Day, we remember both the  quirky and profound moments in the space race that ended with the Americans being the first to plant their flag on the moon.  Stick around— the story is fascinating!
