The Network aims to be a national noticeboard for ‘all things space’ in Australia serving individual space enthusiasts, space industry professionals, aerospace students, academics & organisations and kindred space interest groups, wherever you are in Australia.

We specifically invite members and administrators of other groups to join up, list and promote your events here!

The Australian Space Network aims to list any and all space events in all Australian states and Territories. Naturally, the focus will be on capital cities but any space events happening in regional or rural locations are welcome to be listed also.

The Australian Space Network Meetup group is auspiced and sponsored by the Space Association of Australia Inc (http://space.asn.au/) (SAA).

Brisbane | The Golden Age of Space Exploration

Queensland Performing Arts Centre


Before this decade is over, a woman and person of colour will set foot on the moon. Their presence will not only mark humanity’s triumphant return to the lunar surface, but will mark the beginning of what is potentially a new, golden age of human space exploration, with human exploration of Mars planned within less than a decade, followed by the potential establishment of a permanent base there. Non-human missions will land on Venus and the moons of Jupiter, and will seek life on other planets similar to our own. All of this will involve international both public/private sector cooperation.

Join Brian Greene as he talks to NASA’s outgoing head scientist, Thomas Zurbuchen, and representatives from the European Space Agency and private sector space exploration enterprises for a discussion of what the future holds as space exploration enters its New Golden Age.


Presented with World Science Festival New York
