Shrinking satellites are making it cheaper and more accessible to do science in space.
The future of Australia’s space efforts will hinge on coordination between defence, industry and universities.
Humans have left an absolute mess in space but no one wants to clean it up.
Satellite images taken over three decades show that keeping dingoes out comes at a price.
The first Australian satellite in 15 years, UNSW-EC0, was successfully deployed from the International Space Station, and UNSW engineers are working to make contact when it next passes above Sydney.
Two of Australia’s new satellites will deploy from the International Space Station at 3:25pm (AEST) today. A live feed is available at UNSW ground station, plus telemetry graphics.
Three Australian research satellites – two built at UNSW – blasted off just after 1am to the International Space Station, where they will deploy in orbit to explore the little-understood thermosphere.
Satellite images are a powerful tools for identifying water bodies important to aquatic species' survival in a drying climate, a UNSW-led study shows.
Remote sensing satellites have advantages over conventional air and sea searches and could play a key role in locating the wreckage of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight, writes Linlin Ge.
There is a hole in the Australian public administration where a space agency should be, writes Andrew Dempster.
