Australia's commercial space industry remains earthbound despite high hopes
That's the headline for an opinion piece by a journalist on the ABC, here: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-06-12/s ... ex/9859838

My skepticism regarding some earlier and current government spruiking was noted earlier in this thread. Unfortunately it seems to have been warranted :(
Maybe somebody a bit closer to the new legislation can confirm the opinion in the story? Chime in please if you can.


It is interesting to go back in time to a slightly older thread on a similar topic: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1292

Not much seems to have changed unfortunately. Last I heard IIRC was that 99.7% of aerospace jobs are not in Australia. That was probably about two years ago.
