We celebrate Space Exploration Day every year on July 20. Also known as National Moon Day, President Ronald Reagan created this holiday to commemorate the first crewed mission to the moon and moon landing, which took place on July 20, 1969. Eight years after President John F. Kennedy set a goal for America to land on the moon before the end of the decade, the Apollo 11 mission succeeded. The day also seeks to inspire and encourage young people to pursue careers in space sciences and space exploration. So, let’s look to the heavens and remember the incredible space advances humanity has made thus far, and dream of where we will still go.
