Making space for Australia’s future
Space technologies and services – like emergency management, weather forecasting, internet access and GPS – benefit all Australians.
The Australian Space Agency is committed to:
- advancing Australia’s role as a responsible and sustainable actor in civil space
- creating an environment for the space sector to grow
- supporting space activities and technologies that inspire and improve the lives of Australians.
The agency is a specialist division of our department with their own website. Learn more about their activities below.
Collaborating on global astronomy projects
Australia and the world’s astronomers need access to increasingly large and complex telescopes to answer today’s big science questions.
We partner with other countries and our domestic research sector on projects and opportunities to build cutting-edge technology and capability.
