NASA publishes 2008 space calendar

Jan 21, 2008

The U.S. space agency has published a calendar that highlights 50 years of its milestones, including the first decade of the International Space Station.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said its 2008 calendar details historical facts and photographs that "capture the work and wonder of a decade building the world's largest orbiting laboratory."

Each month of the calendar has a specific theme with images, photographs, significant NASA historical events and Web sites for educators.

"Teachers inspire," said NASA's ISS program manager at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. "We hope this calendar also will inspire a new generation of explorers."

The space agency said nearly 100,000 copies of the calendar have been delivered to classrooms across the United States.

The calendar is available at
