The Australian Space Agency has announced a new grant of $6 million to establish the new Mission Control Centre at Lot Fourteen.

The centre will play a key role in Australia’s space program.
The grant is open now until February 4. It is part of the Space Infrastructure Fund of $19.5 million for seven space infrastructure projects across Australia to drive growth in the space industry.
