Space strategy ready to launch

In the happiest of coincidences, the Australian Academy of Science had its “vision for space and technology” ready for launch yesterday, just two days after the government announced Australia will have a space agency to call our own.

The Academy’s vision sets out what Australian space science does and can do with the right sort of structure and, (naturally) “a degree of strategic funding.” Compulsory reading for Megan Clark’s working group which is tasked with preparing a charter for the National Australian Space Agency (which is what CMM thinks it should be called) by March.
