In celebration of National Astronaut Day today, we premiered a new astronaut-inspired Rubyhorse video for their 2002 hit Sparkle on our Facebook page.
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 (on display in Boston at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. The brief 15-minute suborbital flight reached 116 miles into the atmosphere, a huge milestone. This year we also pay tribute to the Astronauts of the Apollo Program and the remarkable achievement of the Apollo 11 lunar landing – that still leaves a lasting legacy 50 years later!
