World Space Week  World Space Week 2015 - National Poster Making Competition



National Poster Making Competition


   The United Nations General Assembly in 1999, declared 4 to 10 October “World Space Week” to celebrate the contribution of space science and technology to the betterment of the human condition. WSW is celebrated in more than 100 countries around the world with the objective to educate people about the benefits that they receive from space, excite young people about science and gather public support for space programs.

Pakistan Space & Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO), being the National Space Agency, has been organizing World Space Week (WSW) activities in Pakistan since 2005.
