The first Friday in May is Space Day. Space Day was originally started to get America's youth interested in math and science. Space Day focuses upon creating an interest and awareness of all kinds of topics and issues related to space. (source)

In 1981, "M&M's"® Chocolate Candies were chosen by the first space shuttle astronauts to be included in their food supply. "M&M's"® are now on permanent display at the space food exhibit of the National Air & Space Museum in Washington D.C. (source)

  1. I didn't know that about the M&Ms. I do remember as kids, we always wanted to visit Buffalo just to get our hands on M&Ms, which we though would be so much better than our Smarties (it was that 'melt in your mouth, not in your hand' thing!)
