The World Space Week is an international celebration of the contribution that space science and technology makes to the betterment of the human condition. It is celebrated in accordance with the two milestones that were achieved earlier in history. On October 4, 1957, the first man-made satellite was launched, the Sputnik 1, while on October 10, 1967, just ten years after the first flight of a satellite, the first international treaty, the outer space treaty, went into effect. During World Space Week, events and educational programs related to space are held globally.
As per our customs Khwarizmi Science Society is also going to celebrate this week to encourage world space week programs about the exploration of space and science and its impact on human imagination. The Khwarizmi science society is actively participating in SUPARCO's Family Fair on 6th and 7th of October in the popular Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, Allama Iqbal Town.
Activities arranged at our stalls include:
- Creating your own earthquake
