World Space Week is the largest public space event on Earth, with some 2,700 events taking place in 86 countries from today 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 ‘Exploring New World In Space’ to focus on pioneering astrobiology missions such as New Horizons, which was NASA’s first mission to Pluto and Kuiper Belt, as well as key developments in space technology, such as Lockheed Martin’s Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle. This was NASA’s first spacecraft designed to support humans for long-duration, deep space exploration.
