Aus­tralia fi­nally got a proper space agency in July 2018, and now a con­fer­ence in Western Aus­tralia will start to ex­plore how the agency will play a role in the fu­ture.

In part­ner­ship with the Univer­sity of Western Aus­tralia and the in­ter­na­tional pol­icy think-tank Perth USAsia, the In The Zone con­fer­ence will dis­cuss Aus­tralia's role in space. The fo­cus will es­pe­cially be on our re­gional part­ners in the Indo-Pacfic and how we can work to­gether in space.

Top­ics of dis­cus­sion will in­clude im­prov­ing the Earth ob­ser­va­tion sys­tems and plat­forms avail­able in our re­gion (that means satel­lites) as well as "pre­serv­ing the space en­vi­ron­ment". This is about space junk and how Aus­tralia can play a role in clean­ing up near-Earth or­bit for fu­ture space mis­sions.
