We sat under a rising full Moon to explore the world to which humanity is returning. 

In the next ten years NASA’s Artemis missions will put the first woman and person of colour on the Moon, along with the first permanent base. Western Australia is playing its part in this historic step for humanity.

We heard from an aerospace engineers,an  astro-geologist, an eclipse hunter and a lunar rover engineer – each of them with a world-premiere TEDx talk showing how WA is part of the 21st century space race.

  • Program booklet
  • Personalised lanyard
