This first week of May is packed with space and science related events:
May 1st: May Day is an ancient spring festival, and has traditionally been celebrated in the US by leaving small baskets filled with flowers on doorsteps. Overall, it is typically a day devoted to nature and spring. Since the late 19th Century, labor rallies have often been held around the world on May Day as it is also International Workers' Day.
May 4th: May 4th has been adopted by the Star Wars fandom as "Star Wars Day." You might be wondering, "Why May 4th?" Say "May the Fourth Be With You" and you will recognize similarity between it and "May the Force be with you," a line from the movies.
