The Australian Government announced $12 million (Australian) for the space industry in Adelaide, consisting of $6 million for the Mission Control Centre and $6 million toward establishing a Space Discovery Centre for STEM education.

The Mission Control Centre will be built at Lot Fourteen: a former hospital site (pictured) in a prominent city location that’s envisioned by the South Australian government to become a “globally recognised creation and innovation neighborhood.”

Australian Industry, Science and Technology Minister Karen Andrews said the Mission Control Centre would complement the work of the national space agency, which will also be based at Lot Fourteen together with the Office of South Australia’s Chief Entrepreneur, Jim Whalley, and a variety of space- and defense-related startups.

“The Mission Control Centre will be a focal point for space missions in Australia, providing facilities to control small satellite missions, enabling real-time control and testing and the accelerated development of Australian satellite technology,” said Andrews.
