World Space Week

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.

“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

Space: Guiding Your Way

World Space Week 2014 Poster (452x640)

World Space Week 2014 highlights the benefits of satellite navigation to humankind. In 2014 we are seeing the rollout of many improved and brand new Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), like 3rd generation GPS, Glonass, Beidou and Galileo. With the increase in systems we are also seeing an enourmous increase in satellite navigation applications, in road navigation, but also in aviation, shipping, agriculture, disaster recovery and many other areas in society. And let’s not forget about the GPS receiver in your own smartphone, helping you to find your way or locate places in your neighborhood!

We hope that our theme and poster will be a source of inspiration for your World Space Week event!
