This week –
From October 4th (the 56th anniversary of the launch of Sputnik, mankind’s first artificial satellite on October 4, 1957) to October 10th (the 46th anniversary of the signing at the UN of the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activites of States in the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies – which pretty much knocked D. D. Harriman’s plans into a cocked hat), the world celebrates humanity’s exploration of space.
We belong there. We NEED to be there. Hopefully someday we will go – and stay.
Check out all of the international events (many of them hamstrung by the shuttering of NASA, JPL and related US government sites due to our current shutdown) celebrating Space Week.
Check out how MANY events – and the more than you’d expect number of countries participating here
