NEW YORK, March 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, uniphi space agency, a division of uniphi good, LLC, is proud to launch, The Virtual Astronaut™, an agency-wide initiative designed specifically to provide world class motivational keynotes and collaborations with Astronauts, all in a virtual setting.

The traditional meeting and event landscape is changing daily, and will continue to do so, making inspirational, motivational and memorable experiences needed more than ever," noted President & CEO, Annie Balliro, "As an Astronaut Management Group, it is an honor and privilege to represent these extraordinary trailblazers, icons and heroes. We knew it was critical to do something, and fast, to try to get ahead of this shift in the keynote speaker in-person event based culture and make sure that the marketplace knew that Astronauts are still open for business for keynotes and collaborations, both in-person and now in a virtual setting. In addition to continuing our bookings as usual, our team is ready to innovate and adapt to this new way of doing things. We are also looking forward to some fun activations as part of our upcoming National Astronaut Day on May 5th that will help showcase what The Virtual Astronaut is all about."

National Astronaut Day, May 5th
In keeping with the tradition of other Astronaut and Space related celebrations, May 5th was selected for this significant date in history in 1961 when Astronaut Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. became the First American in Space, aboard the Freedom 7 Space capsule. The brief suborbital flight, which lasted approximately 15 minutes and reached a height of 116 miles into the atmosphere, was a milestone achievement. This trailblazing example of heroic bravery and adventurous spirit is this essence of what National Astronaut Day is all about.
Why Do We Believe In Astronauts? The incredible experience of traveling through space is something we all dream about at one time in our life. For a very select few, this dream became a reality. The path for every Astronaut is different, and Astronauts come from a diverse range of personal and professional backgrounds and include experiences such as: scientists, inventors, educators, engineers, trailblazers, innovators, executives, historians, authors, philanthropists, advocates and dreamers. The one thing they all have in common – They are leaders in their chosen field and the pioneers of space.
Please join us on May 5th, every year, as we celebrate these amazing individuals, their unique experiences, and ultimately, to help spread the message that… no matter what our journey in life we are ALL Astronauts. #WeBelieveInAstronauts
