Robert Brand Discusses Australia’s Satellite Utilisation Policy
The new Australian Space policy has been watered down to being a Satellite Utilisation Policy. Robert Brand discusses his reaction to the policy. This was broadcast on April 24th 2013. The interview was carried out by Peter Aylward from Melbourne’s Space Show. It is broadcast at 7pm, Wednesdays on Southern FM 88.3MHz. We had just finished visiting the site of the old Honeysuckle Creek tracking station. The site that brought the world Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon. These days it is little more than a historic site next to a campground. Only the foundations remain with some interpretive boards.
My son Jason took the picture and note how he placed the sign over my head!
