365 Days of Astronomy 7 May 2014, 09:17 UTC Our host, Steve Nerlich (with help from Elena & Jonathan from Sweden & maybe a bit of John Cleese) tells us that "It's the small things that matter" in the formation of stars and solar systems. http://cosmoquest.org/Donate This show is made possible through your donations. Thank you! (Haven't donated? It's not too late! Just click!) The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is a project that is publishing one podcast per day, 5 to 10 minutes in duration, for all 365 days of the year. The podcast episodes are written, recorded and produced by people around the world. We are looking for individuals, schools, companies and clubs to provide 5 - 10 minutes of audio for the daily podcast. You can do as few as 1 episode or up to 12 episodes (one per month, subject to our editorial discretion). Our goal is to encourage people to sign up for a particular day (or days) of the year.

Visitors could see a movie about Moon (top left), a Mercury capsule (bottom left), a Titan rocket and Gemini spacecraft (top right), and concepts about lunar bases (bottom right), among many other space-themed attractions. At center, the grand symbol of the fair was the Unisphere, a stainless steel sphere encircled by rings representing the orbits of early spacecraft. The fair ran for two years, drawing more than 50 million visitors.
