World Space Week

World Space Week

World Space Week (WSW) is an annual holiday observed in over 95 nations throughout the world.  The United Nations General Assembly declared World Space Week  as an annual event celebration in 1999. The choice of dates is based on recognition of two important dates in space history: the launch of the first human-made Earth satellite, Sputnik 1, on October 4, 1957; and the signing of the Outer Space Treaty on October 10, 1967. World Space Week is the largest annual space event in the world!
