World Space Week 2021 honors women in space: How to join the celebration online and in person

This year’s World Space Week kicks off Monday (Oct. 4), bringing people together from around the world to celebrate women in space with a variety of online events and interactive learning activities. 

The international celebration commemorates the achievements and contributions of space science, technology and its applications. The events of World Space Week stretch from Oct. 4 — the launch anniversary of the first human-made Earth satellite, Sputnik 1, in 1957 — to Oct. 10, the anniversary of the signing of the Outer Space Treaty in 1967, which governs how to use space, such as the moon and other celestial bodies, peacefully.
