After lengthy campaign, Australia gets its own space agency

Oz Is Set For A National Space Agency

It so much more than that, it has become part of our everyday lives, from our daily weather forecasts to using our mobile phones. That way it can secure the future of this industry.

Australia is hosting the International Astronautical Congress for the second time, as the 49th Congress was held in Melbourne in 1998.

"Programs like the Space Agency will be crucial to helping these deep technologies develop real-world applications on a global - and in this case extra-global - level".

"What a start to this congress", he said.

The local space industry currently employs about 11,000 Australians and is worth about $4 billion a year to the nation. So it's not surprising that the industry is now underdeveloped.

Dr. Megan Clark, a former head of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, will determine the location of the headquarters and the type of investment profile it needs.

Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) President Naoki Okumura said his agency was already working with Australia on Earth Observation (EO) satellite activities but the agency would lead to closer ties.

UNSW Canberra Space already provides valuable research and technology to support national services, including Defence.

The space industry even requires lawyers. The potential is enormous and opportunities abundant.

We have listened to the industry and the overwhelming response to our Review has been support for a space agency. It has now been tasked with developing a charter for the space agency. "It's 50 years since the launch of WRESAT".

Space plays a significant role in the lives of most Aussies. Keeping in mind that it's not about rockets alone, it's satellite communications, it's meteorology, it's air photography, it's all of the communications aspects of space, it's all of the peripherals that go around the launching of satellites and other things into space, that we see as the big opportunity. "A space agency enables Australia to take a bigger slice of this market with confidence".

"It's designed to create satellites and new uses for the images that come from those satellites, and I don't mean giant, bus-sized satellites of the '60s and '70s".

The decision caps a yearlong campaign to boost Australia's space efforts, led by groups from universities, industry, and government bodies.

But it will. At the conference's formal opening session Monday morning, after a theatrical opening session that included aboriginal songs and a young ballet dancer soaring through the cosmos, Australian government officials took the stage to make an announcement.
