Australia in Space
Over fifty years since Australia became only the third nation to build and launch a rocket from its own territory it finally formed a National Space Agency to guide the National exploration and exploitation of space. Yet the environment today is very different to that of the Cold War, with heretofore unthinkable technologies allowing the next Space Race to be between startups not superpowers. I will explore the ways in which Australia finds itself at the cutting-edge of space exploration, from the boundaries of our atmosphere to the furthest reaches of the Universe itself, and how the Final Frontier presents some very familiar challenges to us back here on Earth.
