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.
