World Space Week

An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 4 of October, repeating indefinitely
Since its United Nations declaration in 1999, World Space Week has grown into the largest public space #STEM event on Earth. More than 1,800 events in 73 countries celebrated the benefits of space and excitement about space exploration in 2015. With our new Theme “Remote Sensing – Enabling Our Future” we aim to inspire even more events around the world in October 2016.
