Join us to celebrate World Space Week this year, from 4 to 10 of October

Why should we celebrate World Space Week ?

We owe many advancements of modern times to space research. Space is the next frontier for human exploration. We are made of stars.

If these are not good enough reasons, celebrating WSW also provides more community outreach and education for space. It is a tool to engage with our local community and helps raise the profile of space-related organisations and activities across our country.

Connect with the WSW Community from New Zealand
