The Warren Centre’s 2014 Innovation Lecture Series, Beyond Earth, highlights the significant role that Australia and Australians play in global space industries.
Sub-orbital space exploration is opening up exciting new frontiers for space science. The main lecture event, which took place in Sydney, Canberra, Perth and Adelaide in September 2014, provided insights into how space tourism is evolving and the opportunities it can provide for new science and exploration.
The lecture was presented by Enrico Palermo, a young and dynamic Australian engineer responsible for running spaceship development activities for Virgin Galactic. Enrico talked about his journey from Perth to the Mojave Desert via University of Western Australia and the International Space University, and the future of space travel.
