High price for space agency

The Saturday Paper - - Letters & Editorial -

The ar­ti­cle by Karen Mid­dle­ton on fed­eral plans to form a na­tional space agency (“Last in space: our late agency plans”, Septem­ber 30- Oc­to­ber 6) are en­cour­ag­ing, but its cost may be a fac­tor mit­i­gat­ing its ef­fec­tive­ness. I sug­gest that if a role for coal in space could be de­vised by our CSIRO boffins, un­in­hib­ited gov­ern­ment sup­port for agency fund­ing would be as­sured.
