If an adversary attacked US satellite networks and space infrastructure, it could cripple the communications and surveillance systems that the Australian military depends on. In this case, the capability to build, launch and operate space systems independently would be a worthwhile investment indeed. Although, we can always outsource it to the kiwis
It may have to wait Bluey. Best if the OZ went on its own on that one. The Kiwi space program is more interested in peaceful purposes that serve its agritech base at this stage according to Shawn Ovis who is outstanding in his field. I am still very keen on launching Russell Crowe into space instead, though he would make an excellent warhead for a retaliatory strike on North Korea. That would put the fear of god up em.
