Australia should be involved in any new mission to the Moon. We have the interest and the expertise so let's be part of the race.
Australia has a well-earned reputation as a mining nation. Now we're moving towards mining 'off world', on the Moon.
The announcement that Australia will finally create its own space agency has opened the door for a long-held dream for many: a home-grown Australian astronaut.
Buried ice on Mars could be a water source for interplanetary visits of the future, write Sophia Casanova, Andrew Dempster and Serkan Saydam.
American cosmologist Neil deGrasse Tyson has gushed about the prospects of mining in space. Could it really deliver world peace, or will it be just another realm for competition and conflict, asks Andrew Dempster.
UNSW space researchers will be able to improve technology that mitigates satellite navigation interference and make satellites cheaper, thanks to almost $600,000 in new federal funding.
Measuring and monitoring Australia’s fresh water is increasingly important, and we need to invest in satellite technology to meet this challenge, argues Gordon Roesler.
Following the release of the federal government's space policy, Professor Andrew Dempster warns that Australia's lack of a space agency and earth observation satellites could leave us vulnerable.
An innovation that increases the accuracy of satellite navigation, including in GPS and smartphones, has caught the eye of international space agencies and delivered UNSW a major award.
The final space shuttle mission could mark the start of a new era of opportunity in space for Australia, says UNSW's Australian Centre for Space Engineering Research.
