Whipp News: Australia gets ready to launch into Space

During the annual budget address on Tuesday the federal government is expected to announce a $50 million fund to establish a space agency in Australia.

After announcing plans for a national space agency in September, the government is finally getting ready for launch! Despite being fashionably late to take-off, with most developed nations already having an agency of sorts, the move would project Australia into the industry worth over $400 billion per year.

With details of funding still yet to be revealed, it is expected private companies will contribute significantly to establish and grow the agency.
