Happy Space Day - Belatedly

Did you miss Space Day yesterday? The 12th annual Space Day, even. For those of you out of the know, the theme for this year's event was "Celebrating Human Space Flight: Past, Present and Future." Didn't get much attention, did it?

Upon reflection, it's obvious why you probably didn't hear about it on Fox News last night. The constrained theme left out the one spaceflight hero for our times. The one that didn't stand on two legs. Please pause with us for a moment of silence for the excluded. All hail, Spacebat!
