Australia seen from space

ANU Institute for Space

Space is no longer just about astronauts exploring our solar system or astronomers learning more about our universe. It’s about innovation, technological advancement and making life better for people on Earth. It’s about satellites and their valuable space data, space medicine advances that translate to your local hospital and rovers and robotics that work off-world and places on Earth humans can’t reach.

The Australian National University (ANU) Institute for Space (InSpace) is a unique national and cross-disciplinary organisation designed to create opportunities for ANU innovators to supercharge Australia’s space capability with technology that helps all Australians.

  • The ANU is home to world-leading space researchers and more than $130M of world-class space infrastructure;
  • InSpace specialises in connecting industry partners and teams of multidisciplinary researchers for effective solutions;
  • We guide innovation teams, supporting a holistic, systems approach to problem solving; 
  • Our researchers help the Australian and global space industries define future challenges and solutions in a variety of areas including advanced communications, Earth observation, space situational awareness and space law and ethics.
