Dear friend

Dr. Megan Clark AC - Head of the new Australian Space Agency

What great timing to learn about the new Australian Space Agency.  In the same week as the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing in 1969

Make sure you bring your family and friends. Hope you can make it.

A very talented and impressive guest speaker
