About event:

Tasmania has emerged as a strategic global location in space situational awareness, tracking, communications, cross-cutting agile innovation and space human life sciences. As Australian Antarctic gateway, Tasmania is the Australian hub of space medicine and life sciences with a long history of Australian Antarctic Division medical research and operational medicine collaboration with NASA.
