World Space Week Highlights 2020

World Space Week is a UN declared celebration of space held annually, every October 4 to 10. It is the largest space event on Earth, with over 8,000 events reported in 2019 and held in 96 countries. These events are organized by thousands of organizations, including space agencies, aerospace companies, astronomy clubs and museums. In 2020, World Space Week is dedicated to satellites and their broad benefits under the theme “Satellites improve life.”

Despite the global pandemic, there are safe and exciting ways to participate and celebrate World Space Week. The Highlights section showcases some of the creative, innovative and popular events bringing people together to celebrate space.


As an official partner to World Space Week (WSW) 2020, the Satellite Industry Association (SIA) will be helping the World Space Week Association promote WSW, a U.N. declared celebration of space. Every year, the World Space Week Association selects a theme as a guidance for celebration. WSW will take place from October 4th – 10th and this year the event will be dedicated to satellites and their broad benefits under the theme “Satellites Improve Life.” SIA and many of its members will celebrate this year’s week. SIA will do so via a social media campaign with messaging focusing on compelling statistics or ideas that support the 2020 WSW theme “Satellites Improve Life” – tagging messages with #WSW2020, @WorldSpaceWeek and #SatellitesImproveLife. SIA members supporting WSW via messaging and events can also use the specially created banners celebrating World Space Week 2020.
