Space for All Australians

About

Space exploration has served as the grandest endeavor the human race has ever undertaken. Reaching out beyond our blue green planet represents the next logical step in the evolution of the human race. While it’s tempting to think of space as the final frontier with astronauts hurtling towards the moon and mars – a lot of space technology has direct societal benefits that improve the quality of life on earth for all.

From satellite enabled farming to predicting bush fires, space exploration has initiated the economic development of space today that year after year, delivers high returns for invested funds in space.

In this session, we will talk about how Australia is developing national space capability in areas of competitive advantage and discuss international partnerships including the Artemis Mission with NASA. We will cover the increasingly critical topic of space sustainability; reducing debris, risk and promoting good behaviour in space for peaceful purposes and socioeconomic benefit over the long term. Finally, we’ll share how 1000s of new jobs and innovations are being introduced with spill-over benefits into defence, agriculture, mining, health, and manufacturing industries. Space is here to improved the lives of all Australians.

WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU IN 2024
