Space Station Launches 10th Anniversary with 2008 Calendar

When did the U.S. launch its first satellite? What day did the first crew arrive at the International Space Station? A new calendar that highlights 50 years of NASA milestones and a decade of station assembly can now be downloaded (PDF).

The colorful 2008 calendar is packed with historical tidbits 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. We hope this calendar also will inspire a new generation of explorers," said Mike Suffredini, manager, International Space Station Program at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

Nearly 100,000 copies of the calendar have been delivered to classrooms in all 50 states. The calendars have been distributed through NASA education programs and NASA-affiliated education networks such as the NASA Central Operation of Resources for Educators, NASA Education Resource Centers, NASA Explorer Schools and the Challenger Center for Space Science Education, Alexandria, Va.

NASA's International Space Station Program office created the calendar to mark its 10th year of operations in orbit and to commemorate the agency's 50th anniversary.

NASA release
International Space Station 2009 Calendar Available Online

As part of NASA's celebration of the 10th anniversary of the International Space Station, the agency is providing a special 2009 calendar to teachers and the public.

The calendar contains photographs taken from the space station. It highlights historic NASA milestones and fun facts about this international construction project of unprecedented complexity that began in 1998.

The calendar can now be downloaded (PDF).

"We hope this calendar will inspire the next generation of explorers and provide interesting and challenging information for educators, students and anyone interested in space," said International Space Station Program Manager Mike Suffredini at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. "As we near the completion of space station assembly, we are doubling the crew size, increasing our knowledge and operational experience, and continuing our quest of exploration and discovery."

Nearly 100,000 copies of the calendar will be delivered to schools in all 50 states. The calendars are distributed through NASA education programs and NASA-affiliated education networks such as the NASA Central Operation of Resources for Educators, NASA Education Resource Centers, NASA Explorer Schools and the Challenger Center for Space Science Education of Alexandria, Va.

NASA's 2010 International Space Station calendar is now available as a downloadable PDF at the ISS homepage (scroll down about halfway for the link).
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of people continuously living on- board the International Space Station, NASA is providing a special 2010 calendar to teachers and the public.

The calendar contains unique images and highlights historic space exploration milestones and educational facts about the international laboratory. Each month has its own theme and offers a glimpse into topics such as a typical day in the life of a crew member, the staff that supports the station, and the massive dimensions of the orbiting research facility.

The calendar is available for free download (PDF).

"As we enter into our 10th year of human presence on the space station, we celebrate that fact and acknowledge the success of the station as one of the greatest technological, political and engineering accomplishments in human history," said Space Station Program Manager Mike Suffredini. "I hope people enjoy the calendar and are inspired to learn something new and exciting about NASA and the station throughout the year."

Nearly 100,000 printed copies of the calendar are being delivered to classrooms in all 50 states through NASA education programs and affiliated education networks.

The PDF is designed (laid out) to be downloaded and printed; your local print shop should be able to print it in color and staple it accordingly to be displayed like any wall calendar.

To further elaborate on Robert's post, the calendar (like previous editions) is already paginated to be printed as 7 double-sided sheets (14 spreads). Just save it to any storage media, and take it to a printer or copy shop. They can then print it and saddle-stitch or cut and coil-bind to your taste.

2013 looks like easily the "prettiest" one yet, by the way.

A print version is available, although I don't know where you would get one. I remember the 2011 calendars being available as "gimmes" in 2012 NASA Tweetups. A bit late, but still....
