The World Jump Day was an event scheduled for July 20, 2006 at 11:39.13 UTC, at which time the organization claimed to have 600 million people from the western hemisphere jump simultaneously. They claimed this would move the Earth out of its orbit, and into a new one, one that would not cause global warming. The site was a hoax, an art installation by Torsten Lauschmann (claiming to be a Professor Hans Peter Niesward from the Institute for Gravitational Physics in Munich), and in no way serious. The German student association Lambda Omega Lambda provided hosting and programming services.

Whereas on July 20, 1969, the people of the world were brought closer together by the first manned exploration of the Moon;
Whereas any strong national commitment to a broad technology base research and development effort, such as the Space Program, where extensive technology transfer is made readily available to American industry, will after a 5 to 10 year time period and beyond, create millions of private sector industry jobs, expand the creation of goods and services, expand the national tax base, advance the U.S. International balance of trade, stimulate the U.S. economy, help to reduce individual taxes indirectly, as well as provide more opportunity, without cutbacks, to reduce the federal deficit.
Whereas in time research pioneered by independent researchers, and the NASA Glenn Research Center Breakthrough Propulsion Physics Project, using emerging new physics, will make possible control over gravity and inertia, making possible Star Travel at acceptable energies and in acceptable transportation times.
Whereas in this same spirit of greatness that made possible, the placing of astronauts on the Moon can be applied to all noble pursuits, including peace, brotherhood, advancement of the human spirit, and the exploration of new frontiers for the benefit of all mankind.
It is resolved that July 20th be designated as Space Exploration Day, a potential holiday on the order of Flag Day, and July 16 - 24 be designated as the U.S. Space Observance, in commemoration of the nine day Apollo 11 Moon Mission.
Lake Superior carries many superlatives: of the five Great Lakes, it’s the biggest, the coldest and the deepest. It’s also the only Great Lake with its very own day.
Held this year on July 20 – it's always the third Sunday in July – Lake Superior Day was started in the early 1990s by a group of Thunder Bay residents who sought to celebrate the body of water that dominates and defines our region. Other organizations and communities followed with festivities of their own, some of which span the entire weekend, and created Lake Superior Day(s) – which might be appropriate for such a large Lake.
Today is National Lollipop Day! Lollipops come in dozens of different shapes, sizes, and flavors. You can make traditional hard-candy lollipops with just four simple ingredients—sugar, water, corn syrup, and the flavoring of your choice.
Culinary historians believe that the lollipop (or at least some form of it) has been around since the prehistoric era. Early humans often enjoyed honey on a stick as a delicious treat. No one really knows how the modern-day lollipop was invented, but we do know how it got its name. George Smith, the owner of a small American candy store, came up with the sweet's name. In the early 1900s, he called the candy a "lollipop" after his favorite racehorse—Lolly Pop.
To celebrate National Lollipop day, head to your local candy or convenience store and grab a lollipop to celebrate! Enjoy!

Moon Day commemorates the day man first walked on the moon in 1969.
The Apollo Space program, begun by President John F. Kennedy, was created to put the first man on the moon. Apollo 11 fulfilled that dream, carrying astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin Aldrin, Jr. What an amazing and historic event it was!
On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 was launched from Cape Kennedy Space Center atop a huge Saturn V rocket. On July 20, 1969, the Lunar Module, nicknamed the "Eagle", touched down on the surface of the moon at Tranquility Base. Upon landing, Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong reported "The Eagle Has Landed". A few hours later, Neil Armstrong, stepped off of the Eagle's ladder, placed one foot upon the moon's surface and proclaimed: "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind".
