By means of their nationally-recognized global engagement and citizen diplomacy programs and our networking and community events, every year WorldBoston provides people from all over the world – and people right here – hundreds of opportunities for learning and connection.

October 12 | Great Decisions with Lori Garver | Outer Space
The launch of Sputnik 1 in October 1957 marked the beginning of the space era and of the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union. In the 21st century, there are many more participants in space, including countries such as India and China, and commercial companies such as SpaceX. How will the United States fare in a crowded outer space?
Join WorldBoston for a discussion of this complex topic with Lori Garver, former Deputy Administrator of NASA.
This event will take place in-person at the Boston Public Library, and will also be live-streamed to Zoom. Register here: https://www.worldboston.org/calendar/2022/10/12/outer-space
