This World Space Week, an initiative by the United Nations to acknowledge the strides made by humanity in space and the impacts of these on our lives, is celebrated around the world from 4-10 October. The theme for 2013 is 'Exploring Mars, Discovering Earth' which may not appear very relevant to the direction taken by SANSA, however, the Agency provides support and research opportunities for astronomy and potential space travel through collaboration with local and international educational institutions and organisations.

The focus for SANSA is to bring the benefit of space science and technology investment back to South Africans through various space programmes from Earth observation and space science research to providing space operations support and exploring the space engineering competencies through development of our next satellite (EO-SAT1).
