The National Committee for Space Science (NCSS) announces the development of the first Australian Decadal Plan for Space Science and invites interested people to participate in the development of the Decadal Plan. The Plan is for the period 2006 - 2015.
Announcement of the planning process:
NCSS is the Committee of the Australian Academy of Science, directed to foster the area of space science in Australia (meaning here all aspects of solar system science beyond the troposphere), to serve as an effective link between Australian scientists and overseas scientists in the same field, and to advise the Academy's Council on relevant matters. NCSS is of the opinion that it is in the best interests of Australia's space science community, associated industries, and Government to develop a first Australian Decadal Plan for Space Science.
