The celebrations of World Space Week (WSW) in federal capital by Institute of Space Technology (IST) on it’s second day continues to attract science and invention lovers, students and people from different walks of life.
The four-day activity based program was launched by IST in collaboration with the National Space Agency of Pakistan (SUPARCO) to celebrate World Space Week (WSW).
WSW will generate space awareness amongst the students from a large number of schools and colleges of the twin cities and surrounding areas besides general public. The World Space Week began with an elegant inaugural ceremony on October on Wednesday where Qaiser Anees Khurram HI(M), Chairman SUPARCO was the chief guest.
He applauded the efforts of Institute of Space Technology for creating awareness about space technology among the youth and educating the students about the benefits of space technology and Vice Chancellor IST Engineer Imran Rahman was also present on the occasion.
World Space Week (WSW) is celebrated in accordance with the United Nation’s General Assembly’s declaration of 1999. The Third United Nations Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNISPACE III) suggested the celebration of the World Space Week. Pakistan is endeavoring to enter into the realm of Space Science and Technology and related applications.
World Space Week celebrations in 2017 will open-up avenues to improve the vast human knowledge and awareness of the clear benefits of space technology and its applications.
This will also illustrate that our exploration potential has no end, and that the sky is not the limit for the many wonders of human discovery.—APP
