In 1999, the United Nations General Assembly declared “World Space Week” to be held every year from 4 to 10 October to celebrate the contribution of space science and technology to the betterment of the human condition.
World Space Week is the largest event in the world dedicated to the exploration and use of outer space. Thousands of space sector organizations around the world, including state space agencies and private companies, educational institutions and academia, hold events united by a common theme.
To celebrate the contribution of women to the development of the space sector, this year’s theme of World Space Week is “Women in Space”.
