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 2014. With our new deep space discoveries theme “Discovery” we aim to inspire even more events around the world in October 2015.

World Space Week 2015



World Space Week 2015 highlights the great era of deep space discovery that we are in. We have never learnt as much of the universe we live in as in the last decade. Space telescopes, deep space probes and several interplanetary satellites and landers have shown us the magic, wonders and opportunities of new worlds. Exoplanets, galaxies far away and close by and landings on planets, moons, asteroids and comets teach us about where we humans have come from and where we will go in the future. Space is all about Discovery!

We are certain that this exciting new theme will be a source of inspiration for your World Space Week event in 2015! And if the theme doesn’t provide enough inspiration, we hope that our brand new poster will!
