World Space Week 2013 "Exploring Mars, Discovering Earth"
World Space Week 2013 is all about what many consider the Next Frontier: the planet Mars. Humanity is quickly conquering this new frontier. Mars Curiosity is the largest rover ever brought to another planet, discovering new features of the Red Planet every day. In 2018 the first people will get a chance to see the planet from up close through Dennis Tito's Inspiration mars fly-by mission, while several organizations are planning the first manned landing mission, some time in the next two decades.

Enough reasons to take a closer look at Mars exploration. During World Space Week from 4 to 10 October 2013 we will show you what we are learning about Mars, but also what we are learning about ourselves! Mars gives us an opportunity to define from scratch what world we want to live in. How can limited resources on a planet be used to build a new civilization, without depleting these resources? How can we create an environment that supports human life, without destroying critical elements needed to sustain other planetary processes? Learnings that we can apply to other planets, but also to our current planet!

We hope this theme will inspire our event organizers to reach out to schools, universities, astronomy clubs, community centers, space industry events and wherever we can celebrate space. Please contact your national coordinator to find out how easy it is to create your own event. Please help us tell the world about "Exploring Mars, Discovering Earth"!

Coming Soon: the world-wide Mars Simulation.

If you are in Melbourne (Australia) on Saturday, October 5th, we'd love to meet you at our "World Space Week" celebration event at IMAX. We'll have space related displays and Space Association of Australia information desk in the lobby of IMAX prior to the screening of the new movie 'Gravity'.
The movie will screen at approximately 6:45 p.m.

There will be lots of space chat afterward, in the IMAX function area (near box office), all welcome!
