World Space Week 2020 kicks off today (Oct. 4) and will celebrate how satellites have changed humanity with a variety of online events to appeal to space enthusiasts and young students alike.
The international celebration commemorates how space improves “the human condition”, according to the World Space Week website. The events stretch from Oct. 4 – the anniversary of first satellite Sputnik’s launch in 1957 – to Oct. 10, the anniversary of the signing of the Outer Space Treaty in 1967 that underlies space law.
