National Astronaut Day

Today is National Astronaut Day! Celebrate by participating in numerous Astronaut Activities or revisit your favorite space book. Author and Nebraska’s only astronaut, Clay Anderson, will be reading today 1:00 p.m. EST on his Facebook Live feed to benefit Reading is Fundamental.

And check out UNP’s Outward Odyssey series! This series provides a popular history of spaceflight from the rocket scientists of the 1930s to today, focusing on the lives of astronauts, cosmonauts, technicians, scientists, and their families. These books place equal emphasis on the Soviets and the Americans and give priority to people over technology and nationalism. It brings to life experiences that shaped the lives of astronauts and cosmonauts and forever changed their world and ours.
