A message from Enrico Palermo

Today is an exciting day as we recognise and celebrate the Australian Space Agency’s third birthday. This is an important opportunity to reflect upon how far we have come in just a few years, to recognise the incredible contributions of our amazing, passionate team, and to celebrate the achievements of the last year.
I commenced at the Agency five months ago, at the end of January. On day one I committed to engaging with the sector – across industry, research and government, a phase of listening, engaging and learning. I have been doing that across the nation and it has been an incredibly valuable and enlightening exercise.

The opportunity for Australia to expand its development and utilisation of space technologies is immense and exciting. Momentum is building, driven by passionate, talented and gritty teams around the nation who have a shared determination to make a difference and to accelerate Australia’s presence and competiveness in what is a truly global sector. Our growing momentum is signalled by many markers, including increasing private investment, the emergence of new innovative technologies, constellations of sophisticated Australian satellites being launched, university research programs creating our future space workforce, maturing domestic capability to build and launch rockets, and hiring by space companies of all sizes.
