The ISC welcomed guests from government, industry and academia on Friday, February 3 to tour six of our 23 space Nodes across the UWA campus. We were delighted to demonstrate the capabilities of our researchers to such an interested, excited audience!

Our guests viewed Plants for Space, Space Crystallography, National Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility, IT and Robotics in Space, Avionics for Sensing and Imaging; and the WA Optical Ground Station for our first public (closed) tour of the Centre.
