Theme for 2017: Exploring New Worlds in Space


Since its United Nations declaration in 1999, World Space Week has grown into the largest public space event on Earth. More than 2,700 events in 86 countries celebrated the benefits of space and excitement about space exploration in 2016. With our new Theme “Exploring New Worlds In Space” we aim to inspire even more events around the world in October 2017.

“The General Assembly declares 4 to 10 October World Space Week to celebrate each year at the international level the contributions of space science and technology to the betterment of the human condition” - UN General Assembly resolution, 6 December 1999
