A new hori­zon: Aus­tralia in the global space race

AQ: Australian Quarterly - - REFERENCES - DUN­CAN BLAKE AND TYSON LANGE

Aus­tralia is no stranger to the global space race; we were crit­i­cal in land­ing men on the moon, we have some of the most ad­vanced astron­omy in­fra­struc­ture in the world, and un­til 1996 we had our own space agency. Yet with gov­ern­ments, busi­nesses and moguls in­creas­ingly look­ing to the stars, Aus­tralia can't af­ford to miss the (space)ship. This year, a new Aus­tralian Space Agency has been launched and it will face nu­mer­ous chal­lenges in nav­i­gat­ing what re­mains the fi­nal fron­tier of hu­man ex­plo­ration.
