This Day In Space

The IAF believes that history plays a vital role in our everyday lives. The study of past events shape our future actions, preparing us for the future. Humanity tends to go through the same challenges over and over again. The only difference is that people learn from what has already happened and develop better problem-solving mechanisms.

Therefore the IAF decided to celebrate the history of space with a new series of videos honouring important milestones in the building of the relationship between humans and outer space named: This Day in Space. By memorializing these crucial moments, the IAF is contributing in equipping the IAF Community with vital skills to understand what informed the actions of those before us as well as helping us in finding new inspiration by remembering how others overcame adversities and innovate; it also creates a sense of moral understanding thus enhancing our belonging and loyalty to all space aspects; it builds a cultural consciousness and cross-cultural appreciation that makes us better citizens into a better society. Most importantly the celebration of history is fun!
