What is Space Week?
Since its United Nations declaration in 1999, World Space Week has grown into the largest public space event on Earth. More than 1,400 events in 80 countries celebrated the benefits of space and excitement about space exploration in 2014. For the first time, North Bay will officially participate as an event location.
Locally, YYB North Bay World Space Week will feature space-related industry meetings, educational programs for local school boards and community activities. Events will run from October 8-10 at Canadore College's Aviation Technology Campus, 22 Wing/Canadian Forces Base North Bay, and the Capitol Centre.
