Space Week is a UN declared celebration of space held annually, from the 4th to the 10th of October.
This year’s theme is ‘Satellites Improve Life’, so it’s time to acknowledge the importance of space exploration, technology, and science in our everyday lives. Let us take you beyond planet Earth with Disney+.
