Creating jobs: We have lift off, Arnhem Space Centre given tick of approval
The Northern Territory (NT) is a step closer to being part of the trillion dollar international space industry with NASA and Equatorial Launch Australia (ELA) ready to launch their sounding rocket program in 2020 from the Arnhem Space Centre.
ELA is developing a commercial spaceport in East Arnhem Land, with a sub-orbital rocket launch facility planned for the south west of Nhulunbuy.
In more great news for the project, the NT EPA has deemed the centre to not have a significant environmental impact and does not require an environmental impact assessment. This will indicate to the global space industry that the Territory is truly open for business.
