We love outer space art.
What a terrific way to expand kids’ imagination–literally! So we were thrilled to learn that August 29 is the 50th Anniversary of the Gemini V Flight.
Gemini V was a space flight manned by L. Gordon Cooper, Jr. and Charles “Pete” Conrad, Jr. The flight lasted 8 days (actually, 7 days, 22 hours, 55 minutes, 14 seconds!), the amount of time it would take to fly to, land on, and return from the Moon.
While this flight might not be as famous as some other outer space adventures, this test-run helped scientists gather a lot of information that would eventually help get the first men on the Moon.
So, join us in celebrating the 50th anniversary of this groundbreaking space flight. We’ve assembled a few examples of our outer space art here, and we’ve got lots more on our site (including outer-space themed night lights – what better way to light your little one’s path to the window so she can gaze out at the moon?).
