World Space Week (WSW) is an important international event celebrated since 1999, according to a United Nations (UN) resolution. The week-long celebrations held from October 4 to 10 of every year, commemorate two milestones in Space exploration; the 4th October marking the launch of the first man-made satellite, Sputnik-1 in 1957, and the 10th October marking the day on which the UN declaration for peaceful uses of outer Space came into force in 1967.
SPACE celebrates World Space Week in October, every year:
SPACE celebrates World Space Week in October, every year with many exciting programmes throughout the month of October with its associated schools and enthusiasts in India to join in the largest celebration of public space event based on a specific theme. SPACE encourages everybody to celebrate World Space Week all the way up to the 3rd week of October
Every year, World Space Week Association selects a theme as a guide for celebration. Our 2022 WSW theme is “Space and Sustainability”, it will celebrate two branches of the topic to be covered-achieving sustainability in space, and achieving sustainability from space. The theme is inspired by how sustainability in space relates to how humanity uses space, most pressingly, the orbital area surrounding Earth-itself a finite resource. There is a much greater story to tell in terms of how space exploration and remote Earth observation can help drive change for our own home planet.
Indeed, satellites are more important and accessible than ever.Miniaturization and lower launch costs have made satellites available to schools. Companies are developing constellations of small satellites to make the Internet available to everyone in the world. Satellites are so ubiquitous in our lives that we often take them for granted. Imagine the world without GPS navigation, enabled of course by satellites.
