World Space Week 2021
World Space Week 2021 is taking place from 4-10 Oct! Keep an eye out on social media platforms for Q/A sessions with members of the Astronomy & Astrophysics Group and the CSDA, as they talk about the wonders and importance of space.
In the meantime, why not check out some of the fantastic engagement activities that CSDA members have been involved in...

If you have a keen interest in the area of space sustainability, you may wish to sign up to the Global Network On Sustainability In Space (GNOSIS), which organises workshops, conferences and provides seed funding for a range of projects. If you missed the GNOSIS21 Conference last month, you can find the recordings here.
For those more academically minded, you may wish to check out the collection of research articles that have been published by members of the CSDA.
Finally, here's a press release about the recent £3.5 million donation that promises to boost the Astronomy & Astrophysics Group by supporting PhD students and early career researchers for years to come.
Happy World Space Week!
