World Space Week runs from 4-10 October and encompasses well over a thousand events around the globe.
Since its United Nations declaration in 1999, World Space Week has grown into the largest public space event on Earth. More than 1,400 events in 80 countries celebrated the benefits of space and excitement about space exploration in 2013. With our new satellite navigation theme “Space: Guiding Your Way” we aim to inspire even more events around the world in October 2014.
It’s more than a little sad to see absolutely no take-up in Australia. And from what I can see there was nothing last year either so it doesn’t appear to be a case of events not yet being announced. I wonder, upon a star, what’s going on with Sydney Observatory and Parkes Radio Telescope?
