Space exploration drives the imagination of people young and old, but it is also an important tool for promoting international cooperation, economic development and world peace. Our panel of international experts will provide a unique insight into recent efforts to harness the benefits of space technology to deliver tangible benefits to people on earth.

The panel will be moderated by Mr Michael Davis, Chair of the Space Industry Association of Australia. Panelists: Ms Flavia Tata Nardini, CEO of LaunchBox and Fleet Space Technologies; Prof Ray Williamson, international space policy expert and former USA Congress advisor on space; Dr Michael Simpson, Executive Director of Secure World Foundation; Mr Nicola Sasanelli, Director for R&D - International Collaborations for Defence SA.
