Join us to celebrate World Space Week this year,
from 4 to 10 of October
All you have to do is organise an event and then register it on the international World Space Week site.
Why should we celebrate World Space Week ?
We owe many advancements of modern times to space research. Space is the next frontier for human exploration. We are made of stars.
If these are not good enough reasons, celebrating WSW also provides more community outreach and education for space. It is a tool to engage with our local community and helps raise the profile of space-related organisations and activities across our country.
Of course, the best reason to celebrate it, it is because we can have fun while doing space-related activities.
The theme for 2020 is
Satellites Improve Life
Since 2019, New Zealand Astrobiology Network is the National Coordinator of the World Space Week in New Zealand.
World Space Week is an activity supported by the New Zealand Space Agency
Every year, the World Space Week Association picks a theme. The theme for 2020 is “Satellites Improve Life.”
In 2021, World Space Week will target “Women in Space.
