About the Program
World Space Week is an international celebration of Space Science and Technology and their contribution to the betterment of human conditions. Every year, 4th to 10th October is being celebrated by more than 70 nations as World Space Week in commemoration of the launch of the first man-made Earth Satellite, Sputnik-I on 4th October 1957 and the signing of the treaty on principles governing the activities of states in the exploration and peaceful uses of outer space including the moon and other celestial bodies by a resolution in UNO on 10th October 1967.
The United Nations General Assembly made this resolution on 6th December 1999 declaring that World Space Week will be held each year from October 4-10. Every year, the World Space Week Association (WSWA) selects a theme which has wide public appeal. SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota the “Spaceport of India” and one of the lead centres under ISRO has been traditionally celebrating the World Space Week with a gamut of public outreach programmes at Sriharikota since 2000. The outreach programme has taken new wings in 2015 by reaching many places covering four states.
