The Australian government has just announced the formation of their nation’s first space agency.
A press release posted to the Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science webpage, begins: “The [Prime Minister] Turnbull Government has committed to establishing a national space agency to ensure Australia has a long-term plan to grow its domestic space industry.”
More details are expected soon, with a charter for the agency expected by the end of March 2018.
Any suggestions for their motto?
I’m going with: The Down Under Goes Up Over.
