Australia has been a part of the human journey into space since the days of NASA’s Mercury program, when the Muchea Tracking Station gave critical southern hemisphere support to John Glenn as he became the first man to orbit the Earth in 1962. But in the ensuing 56 years, while 74 other nations, including New Zealand and Indonesia, formed space agencies, Australia did not. In 2018, that changed.
This three-part program will look at the past history of Australia’s role in space exploration, take a deep dive into the forces that formed the new Australian Space Agency (ASA) and examine the visionary science that will propel our nation into the future of space travel in 2019 and beyond. Bringing together leaders in the ASA, historians, engineers and physicists, this will be a fascinating celebration of Down Under among the stars.
