In 1999 United Nations declared October 4th through 10th World Space Week. With more than 1,400 events in 80 countries, it has grown into the largest public space event on Earth.
The highlight for World Space Week 2015 will be the deep space discovery and the enormous amount of knowledge that we have obtained over the past decade with space telescopes, deep space probes, interplanetary satellites, and interplanetary landers. So far, 74 events have registered for the WSW2015.
