Nine private and public stakeholders have joined the Australian Space Network and others will be recruited next year.I´m still Googling to find where to sign up.
The network founders set three initial goals:
- A Fedsat 2 satellite operating by 2005;
- Australian instruments on Mars by 2010; and
- Australian-produced microsatellites orbiting Mars by 2015.
The network's aim is to bring the country's space professionals and companies together to compete for high-technology projects sponsored by the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency.

I´ve written in past posts about the Chinese space programme, and even the Nigerian one. But I´d missed this little article from the Sydney Morning Herald.
