What does a career in space look like?

Discover South Australia's space industry and what a career looks like for you.

South Australia is already home to more than 100 space-related organisations and is committed to growing the local workforce – including pathways to study and train.

Astronauts and rocket launches might be the first thing that comes to mind but there’s much more to the space industry! Our every-day lives are impacted by information collected in space.

Space satellites collect data that provide our farmers with insight into future rainfall; give our emergency services the ability to monitor, manage and even prevent emergencies like bushfires and allow us to use GPS functionality on our mobile phones and in our cars and there’s so much more! What will research and innovation in the space industry help us do next?

South Australia has a rapidly growing space industry and is fast cementing our position as Australia’s hub for future space industry development.

To keep up this momentum, the local space industry needs specialists in space law, engineering, design and manufacturing, robotics and data analytics.
