Our guest speaker for May is Andrew Dempster, Director for the Australian Centre for Space Engineering Research (ACSER). Andrew’s talk looks at the development of space resources approaches at UNSW. Australia has committed $150million to “Moon to Mars”, participating in NASA’s Artemis program, which aims for first female boots on the moon in 2024 and permanent presence by 2028. For permanent presence, resources such as water are important and Australia’s strengths in remote and mining technologies make this a potential niche.
