World Space Week is a global celebration of humanity's achievements in space, with various events held around the world between 4 – 10 October.
The theme of World Space Week 2019 is “The Moon: Gateway to the Stars”. The theme is devoted to our nearest space neighbour to celebrate the incredible achievement of landing on the Moon 50 years ago.
To mark this occasion, the South African National Space Agency (SANSA) in Hermanus is celebrating the 15th anniversary of their Science Centre with the unveiling of new exhibits.
Also there to enjoy the opportunity to travel through space and ‘to touch the stars’, were primary school learners from Mount Pleasant, Lukhanyo and Zwelihle.
