World Space Week (abbrv. WSW) is an annual holiday held from October 4 to October 10. It is observed from 4–10 October in most of the world, in continents including Europe, Russia and Asia.

Mission: SPACE (W, not for people who don't like spinning rides)
Soarin' (M, best ride in WDW)
Maelstrom (M, log flume ride)

Be sure to get Fast Passes. Once you get to a ride you want to go on, there will be Fast Pass distribution machines (at almost all the rides). You put your park pass into the machine and you get a Fast Pass (one per park ticket). Each Fast Pass has its own time interval, and this is when you can return to that ride and use the Fast Pass to get on the shorter line. Be aware that as you get Fast Passes later in the day, the time intervals will be later. So even if you obtain Fast Passes at one in the afternoon, the time intervals may be between 7PM and 8PM. The time intervals will be posted on boards above the machines, so you don't have to wait until you get them to find out what times you got. These are rides for which I recommend you go early in the day (maybe a little after the park opens) to get Fast Passes so you don't miss them:
Space Mountain (MK)
Splash Mountain (MK)
Peter Pan's Flight (MK)
Test Track (EPCOT)
Soarin' (EPCOT, this is a must because the standby line can get up to two hours or more)
Mission: SPACE (EPCOT)
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster (Hollywood, although the line for this is shorter at the end of the night)
Tower of Terror (Hollywood, same as Rock 'n' Roller Coaster)
Expedition Everest (AK)
Kilimanjaro Safaris (AK)
Keep in mind that wait times are not always accurate. Usually, the posted wait times are longer than the wait actually is. So don't be discouraged by 45-minute waits or half-hour waits. Half-hour waits could be about 20 minutes, and so on. However, longer waits (like 60 minutes or more) are usually that long. But if you see a very popular ride with a wait time of about 45 minutes or less, then definitely go for the standby line. That kind of wait time is a blessing, especially for rides like Soarin' or Space Mountain.
Hope this helps! Have a great trip!
The World Space Week 2010- Mysteries of the Cosmos: What are the major mysteries of Cosmos?
There are two I would like to highlight:
1. Grand Unification Theory - We currently have three separate basic sets of laws of physics: Newton classical physics for objects in our everyday life, Einstein relativistic physics for massive objects and great distances and Heisenberg quantum physics concerning matter on an atomic level. These laws seem to exist on their own and independent of one another yet they all operate on the same universe and all matter. There might not even exist a universal set of physical laws.
2. Dark Energy/Dark Matter - The energy and matter we observe in the universe is not enough to satisfy the laws of physics. Therefore, we have invented the terms dark energy and dark matter and assigned them to that which we cannot observe or perceive directly. We're not sure what it is, where it is, how it works, but it must be there.
I'll also give a shout out for time itself. What is time? Al we know is that events don't happen simultaneously so the space between an event is what we call time. Does that make time a dimension? Is it space?
Pregnant at Disney World?
I went ot Disney World when I was 9 weeks pregnant. Early pregnancy is the most fragile and I would not ride ANYTHING that has warnings which includes space mountain and thunder mountain railroad (Disney is good about posting these signs). Rides are not worth putting your baby at risk!
There are plenty of things to do at Disney without the big roller coasters and bumpy rides. I actually took the opportunity to enjoy some of the rides designed for little children such as Peter Pan's Flight and It's a Small World. There are many other rides that you will be safe to be on - my favorite was Soarin' at Epcot. I also got to watch ALL of the parades and shows which is sometimes very stressful and hard when you are trying to get in all the rides. Also, I was so tired that I welcomed the opportunity to go back to the hotel and soak in the pool (I hope you are staying at a Disney Resort). The only downfall was that I could not enjoy my Disney food - I was so nauseous the whole time.
Going pregnant will give you a different, slower view of Disney. Disney World is magical no matter your condition! Go and enjoy! My little girl is now turning 4 and we are about to take her to Disney World for the first time (well maybe the second if you count the time she went in mommy's belly).
PS - get a map and locate and highlight ALL of the restrooms. :)
