It's World Space Week is just round the corner. Every year's 4-10 Oct is the UN declared World Space Week (WSW). There are loads of space related events going on, be sure to check them out!
We are launching Space Town Hall (http://www.spacetownhall.com/) too during WSW. On the 6th of Oct evening, Space Town Hall will launch its first gathering at Impact Hub, Westminister, London, UK. The idea of the Space Town Hall is that it provides an regular avenue for people who wants to do some hands on space projects to get together, regardless of boundaries and backgrounds.
On this very first event, you will hear a couple of new initiatives on open space projects which you are encouraged to join from our 3 speakers. After that, socializing on all thing space over pizza and beer (generously brought to you by International Space University). We will be in a cafe setting, so there's plenty of table space if you have a DIY space project show - bring them along!

Space Town Hall is a Citizen Inventor initiative but it cannot be a regular and open without you. If you have an open space project that you are looking for contributors and/or want to join a space project, Space Town Hall have a directory to help you. The only requirement for submission is that it has to be something that citizens are more than welcome to work on. If you have a project you'd like to showcase or wants to call for participation and/or have an idea that you want to test out, let us know via email if you'd like to speak next or just bring it along and bounce it round!
