World Space Week

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     In 1999, the United Nations declared that World Space Week would be celebrated each year from October 4-10. The UN members chose October 4 for the first day of World Space Week for a very special reason. On October 4, 1957, the first human-made Earth satellite, Sputnik I, was launched. At last, space exploration had begun!
 
2     Anybody can celebrate World Space Week. Schools, teachers, countries, businesses, and governments can decide what they want to do. Even one person can put together an activity for World Space Week!
 
3     Would you like to know what people in other places have done for World Space Week?
