Unchartered territory: Australia’s growing space mining industry
As a former NASA astronaut, Pamela Melroy commanded a space shuttle and spent almost 1000 hours in space. In this special presentation for resources professionals, Pamela will be sharing her insights into space exploration and the vision for space mining.
This keynote will cover the new technologies emerging in the space industry and how Australian Remote Operations for Space and Earth (AROSE) was established to unify Australia’s unique abilities in the space sector and terrestrial remote operations. What are the biggest challenges of space mining and how can Australian professionals in the sector work together to be a leader in the development of space mining?
