Newbie in Perth, Western Australia

Postby ScubaYorp » Mon Jun 04, 2018 2:00 pm

Hi folks,

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rob Hunt and I live in beautiful Perth, Western Australia. I'm 59 years old.

I have a little experience building model rockets, but lots of education and work experience in science, astronomy, teaching and outreach. I've just finished my Masters and would now like to put my involvement with all things 'space' to good use.

I joined the WA Rocketry Society a few days ago and enjoyed their 10th anniversary of the annual Williams event. Thanks folks!!

I'm very interested in the current state of Australia's space industry and have some connections to the Space Industry Association of Australia and the National Space Society of Australia as well as the Mars Society of Australia.

I'd really like to contribute to the outreach of space/rocketry for the Australian public, particularly the WA public - so you'll be seeing me pop up all over the place.

For me info about me, please do visit

Looking forward to chatting...
