Every school and class is welcome to have an exciting day at the UT Tartu Observatory: register a visit and have scientists show you around!
During World Space Week, there are nine pre-registered visits from schools. The schools are from all around Estonia. This year, the emphasis during the visits is on the mysterious Moon, because the topic of this year's space week is "Moon: Gateway to Stars".
If you wish to register your school group, contact Mare Ruusalepp (mare.ruusalepp [ät] ut.ee) or Tanel Liira (tanel.liira [ät] ut.ee).
All World Space Week events held in Estonia can be seen on the event's webpage.
World Space Week is an international celebration of science and technology, and their contribution to the betterment of the human condition. The United Nations General Assembly declared in 1999 that World Space Week will be held each year from October 4-10. These dates commemorate two events: Launch of the first human-made Earth satellite, Sputnik 1 on October 4, 1957; and The signing of the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activites of States in the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies on October 10, 1967.
