Australia needs space program, says Senate report
The Herald Sun
“The Senate Standing Committee on Economics said Australia is missing out on significant innovation and technology opportunities because it lacks a space agency.
“The committee’s report, Lost in Space? Setting a new direction for Australia’s space science and industry sector, said the government should establish a Space Industry Advisory Council to oversee the creation of a fully-fledged agency.
“The council would be made up of industry representatives, government agencies, defence personnel, and academics and chaired by the federal innovation minister.”
