World Space Week is an international celebration of space science and technology and their contribution to the betterment of the human condition. The United Nations General Assembly declared in 1999 that World Space Week will be held each year from 04 – 10 October to commemorate the launch of the first satellite Sputnik (04 October 1957), and the signing of the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies (10 October 1967).
As the primary policy-making and coordinating body on all matters related to outer space, the Philippine Space Agency (PhilSA) is once again spearheading the country’s celebration of World Space Week through a lineup of events that aim to raise awareness and inspire action on the 2022 theme, “Space and Sustainability.” PhilSA, through its in-person, virtual, and hybrid activities, will gather and empower students, researchers, scientists, industry professionals, policy-makers, and the general public through the media, to promote the sustainable utilization of the outer space environment and the grassroots mobilization of space-borne data for the sustainable development of our society.

“Should We Worry About Orbital Debris?”
10 October 2022
The Philippine Space Agency is inviting you this World Space Week as we ask the question: “Should We Worry About Orbital Debris?” #JoinTheMission as we look for answers in our webinar on 10 October 2022, from 08:30 AM to 11:30 AM (PhST).
With the rapid progress in space science and technology applications and the emergence of new space-faring nations and non-state actors, the world is observing an increasing trend in outer space activities. The frequent launch of objects into outer space increases the number of rocket launches and the risks of damage from falling space debris, as well as collisions of space objects in orbit.
