Australia Announces It Will Create a National Space Agency

SYDNEY – The Australian government announced on Monday its commitment to the creation of an agency to support and develop space technologies and boost the growth of its aeronautical industry.

“The global space industry is growing rapidly; it’s crucial Australia is part of this growth. The Turnbull government will establish a national space agency to ensure we take advantage of the exciting opportunities of the new space race,” said Acting Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science, Michaelia Cash.

Details regarding the cost or the location of the agency’s headquarters are not available as yet.

Concerns about the lack of a space agency in Australia come at a time when most developed countries have such a body, including neighboring New Zealand.

The announcement will help create more jobs in the space sector and lead to more fruitful collaborations with the NASA, Australian astrophysicist Alan Duffy told ABC news.
