It has been two years since the official launch of the Australian Space Agency. While the Agency is still young, it has opened exciting doors for the nation from fast-growing startups to multi-national collaborations. 

In our Cosmos Briefing on Thursday, 25th February, we will discuss how Australia’s space industry is expanding, what we can do to stay competitive, and how to maximise the benefits of private industry alongside government at the final frontier.

Join host Professor Alan Duffy of the Royal Institution of Australia with Dr Cassandra Steer, Adam Gilmour, and Aude Vignelles.

To join us for the 45-minute session, beginning 3pm AEDT, please register here.

Steer is a Mission Specialist with the ANU Institute for Space (InSpace), and a Senior Lecturer at the College of Law. She has more than a decade of international experience and brings a comparative perspective to all her research and teaching.

Gilmour is the CEO and co-founder of Gilmour Space, a venture-funded space technology and rocket company. He believes that rockets can be made smaller, cheaper, and faster, and that the New Space industry, and Australia, would benefit greatly from having more dedicated access to space. 

Vignelles is the Chief Technology Officer at the Australian Space Agency. She leads and is responsible for writing the civil space strategy roadmaps, scoping and managing the Agency’s space programs and delivering on domestic and international activities.
