It’s been a long time coming, but Australia is finally going to have a Space Agency. This will enable Australian space industries to benefit from agency-to-agency agreements and collaborations, and facilitate our participation in the growing global space market.

The Federal Government appointed an Expert Review Panel to map out how the Agency should operate. As we wait for its report – the final strategy was scheduled to be submitted in March 2018 – two space experts offer their perspectives on what we might expect.

Up to 3000 international space experts as part of the world assembly of the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) will gather in Sydney's new Darling Harbour Centre for what is affectionately known as the "Space Olympics" in 2020.

The city beat out Shanghai, Valencia, Prague and Lausanne to host the event, and could be the beginning of Australia launching its own space agency.
