Australia in Space by Kerrie Dougherty
This revised and updated edition of Space Australia tells the story of Australia’s involvement with space activities, from the earliest rocketeers to the latest satellite projects.
It describes the vision, high hopes and achievements of professional space scientists and engineers, in both the civil and defence spheres, as well as the inspired amateurs and the new-breed of young space entrepreneurs who want to contribute to Australia’s space future. The book also highlights the challenges of maintaining an Australian commitment to space activities through changing political and economic circumstances.
