World Space Week 2014. 4th to 10th October

Get ready for World Space Week 2014.

I will be with Airbus Defence and Space at Winchester Science Centre, but there is still opportunity for a school visit if you want one!

The theme for World Space Week 2014 is “Space: Guiding Your Way”.

With this theme World Space Week will highlight the benefits of satellite navigation to society.

Over recent years society has come to rely heavily on positioning and timing data from a large network of satellites. This dependency will increase even further with the release of multiple new systems on top of the existing Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) network.

In 2014 we are seeing Galileo, Glonass and Beidou being added to the global GPS system.
