Aug-11: Technion webinar: The sky is NOT the limit – breakthroughs in space research

Read on for article

Billions of dollars are spent on space research each year.  The Technion asks if it is worth it?

What are the community benefits of this expense to humanity in these COVID19 times?

Join global space experts as they share insight into the future of space, how it affects everyday life and what role Australia and Israel play in this world and gain an insight into three Technion experiments on next year’s Rakia mission to the International Space Station.

The webinar will include a Q&A with the speakers

The so-called “space race” between the world’s most powerful economies (mostly the U.S., Russia and China) is no longer restricted to governments.

Recently, Billionaire Jeff Bezos spent 10 minutes in space in his ‘New Shepard’ spaceship, a few days earlier Richard Branson was also “touring” space and it is all happening while Elon Musk is working on his “out of this world” project to inhabit Mars – Space X.

Australia and Israel are not staying behind. They are investing substantially to join the “race”.

Next year, Eytan Stibbe will become the second Israeli to enter space. Eytan will conduct several experiments that are expected to advance the study of science and medicine in Israel in various fields. Three of these experiments, from the Technion will be launched to the International Space Station.

Furthermore, a group of three autonomous microsatellites developed by the Technion were launched into space. The trio – part of the Adelis-SAMSON project – will be able to calculate the location of radiating sources on Earth, locating people, aircraft, and marine vessels, thus enabling search-and-rescue missions around the world.

Meanwhile, the Australian Space Agency has approved the plan to launch test rockets from Whalers Way near Port Lincoln in South Australia.

The Australian Government’s recently announced helping local space manufacturers expand their supply chains globally through its AU$1.3 billion Modern Manufacturing Initiative.
