Launceston's Queen Victoria Museum at Inveresk will welcome its latest touring exhibition Australia in Space, this Saturday June 17.
Australia in Space is an interactive family exhibition developed by Questacon with support from the Federal Government.
It explores the ways that Australian innovations are used in space, and the surprising benefits space technologies bring to everyday life here on Earth.
Visitors to Australia in Space will be excited and engaged by hands-on exhibits exploring Australia’s cutting-edge expertise in space science and technology.
The exhibition outlines the unique challenges and opportunities of operating in space as well as Australia’s contributions to the global space industry.
Throughout the exhibition, visitors will be inspired by the achievements, aspirations and motivations of real Australians in the space sector.
