What is Australia's place in the latest space race?

Rapidly declining launch costs have democratised access to space and a reinvention of who and what is done in space is underway globally. Australia marches into this arena with an albeit young space agency and domestic manufacturing base, but with much to offer, including a sophisticated R&D sector which will be the engine for our longer-term aspirations.

Professor Anna Moore will introduce some of these possibilities including Australia becoming the hub for next generation communications throughout the solar system, to setting up the responsible use of space for generations to come.

Part of a series of events celebrating the 75th anniversary of ANU.
