The day: July 16, 1969. The day of the moon landing. Neil Armstrong declared, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” In 1980, the World Space Week Association put together a small space event called Space Week. By 1999 it had grown to 15 different countries recognizing this celebration yearly.
Space Week is held internationally every year from October 4th-10th. It is held now in over 90 countries worldwide. We celebrate space week this week, but here and now there are more dreamers of what it would look like to be in space. The closest to space most of us get to now is flying in a plane from one city to another.
Someday, we may have leisure flights from anywhere on earth to Mars or even to another galaxy. The sky is truly the beginning, not the limit. Hello Space Week, thank you for coming.
