World Space Week is the largest public space event on Earth, with more than 4,000 events taking place in 82 countries through 10 October.
Here in the UK there are quite a few events planned across the country, from experiencing zero gravity to meeting astronauts. You can find the full list of events here.
The theme for this year is ‘Satellites Improve Life’, which encourages students and the public to learn about satellites and the many ways they improve life on Earth.
