On this week’s episode of Space Connect Podcast, host Bella Richards is joined by Professor Phil Bland from Curtin University, who is also the director of the Space Science and Technology Centre (SSTC).
Professor Bland reveals that Australia needs to aim higher in funding basic research to make more discoveries, send more homegrown spacecraft into orbit, and to keep people in their jobs.
Bella and Phil also chat about Curtin’s Binar-1 launch last year, the challenges that came with it, and how it proved that Australia does have all the space capabilities.
