Advance Space Town Hall

November 23, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm AEDT

Find out why the private sector and government in Australia have embraced the space industry and are looking to secure a global role in its development and future.

The global Space Economy is estimated to be worth $345 billion USD. Within this rapidly growing sector, where does Australia fit in? And what are the benefits of our exploration for Australians and for Australian businesses?

What can our industry leaders gather from the Australians pioneering space technology overseas?

We will seek answers to these, and many more questions, with our panel of space experts.

This digital Town Hall is for all viewers, from the everyday citizen through to space industry experts.
