Regardless of human barbarism, the madness of war and the economic, social and financial chaos of the world, World Space Week celebrates “space and sustainability” this year. It is relaxing, instructive and inspiring…
Also, year after year, since December 6, 1999, several issues have occurred since the establishment of this Week proclaimed by the United Nations Organization (UN).
Last year, the theme was “Women in Space”, and some 6,000 events were organized for this purpose in more than 96 countries. Exit.
Why a World Week?
As in previous years, from October 4 to 10, 2022, thousands of followers will have the opportunity to celebrate sustainability in space and sustainability from space in almost a hundred countries.
Highlight the contribution of science and technology to the improvement of the human condition.
These October days remind us of two events: first, the launch of the first artificial Earth satellite, Sputnik, on October 4, 1957, and then the entry into force of the space treaty, on October 10, 1967.
It is on this basis that the UN decided to celebrate this World Space Week annually.
Humanity has been pursuing its long and constant evolution for several million years. We come from very far.
Let’s think about Australopithecus, Lucy, Homo habilis, Homo erectus, Homo neanderthalensis and Homo sapiens…
Imagination, science and technology are vectors that take us to where we are today in terms of knowledge of the universe and ourselves. They will also determine the world in which the next generations of Homo sapiens sapiens will live.
For our teachers, this Week is ideal, in particular, to arouse our young people’s interest in imagination, science in general and mathematics in particular.
It is also an ideal time to learn more and discover, among other things, the wonderful scientific journey of a young Quebecois, Farah Alibay. Her wonderful biography, my martian yearpublished very recently by Éditions de l’Homme, it will inspire more than one and more than one.
In addition, this week is ideal to discover or rediscover technological feats and promises, as well as the revelations of the famous James Webb telescope.
Also, this is an opportunity to reconnect with the probe. traveler 2, like NASA did last week…
For almost 50 years and almost 20 billion kilometers, it has traveled the universe and the interstellar void and continues to send us information.
Space is good for the soul when you care…
In particular, it inspires humility and wisdom, more than fatuity, barbarism, war madness and the economic, social and financial chaos of the world.
