This new thread is for all the countries that are joining the space race, and that are not space powers with their own launchers still ...

Its official! Australia is finally getting a national space agency. Unfortunately, Uncle Scrooge was put in charge of the budget. The budget for the next financial year is only $5.7M (US$4.2M) but does increase to $13.7M (US$10.2M) in 2021-22.

To put this in context, the Australian Federal budget for 2018-19 is $488.6B, making the first year of spending 0.0012% of the total amount!

The median Australian yearly household income is $81,947, so that 0.0012% is just 96 cents. That will get you a quarter of a cup of coffee here.

Incredible the first great success of ACAE, hopefully more initiatives like this will arise :)

I know this new thread is about "countries"--nation states-- beginning to do stuff in space.

But I believe it could be apt to point out here that, for any countries which did not go down the political-incentive induced space game road during the first six decades of the humans possessing spaceflight technology (1957-2017), the largest contributor to "space" economic activity and "spaceflight engineering" in the next couple of decades might very well be the result of private action, and not the gvmt action that predominated in decades 1-6.

Economic incentives, and the much shorter innovation cycle times induced by economic incentives relative to political incentives, is likely to drive much higher activity than any growth of a "just getting started in 2018" government space agency budget. 

Australia is but an example of this. 

Will be fun to watch.
Re arguments from authority on NSF:  "no one is exempt from error, and errors of authority are usually the worst kind.  Taking your word for things without question is no different than a bracket design not being tested because the designer was an old hand."
"You would actually save yourself time and effort if you were to use evidence and logic to make your points instead of wrapping yourself in the royal mantle of authority.  The approach only works on sheep, not inquisitive, intelligent people."

The UK hopes to drive UK private industry in space but still government has to spend initially to drive this along, and that spending is far more than Australia is intending to invest. So I don’t think your argument really holds together as if you want to be major player you still have to spend the relevant amount in the first place to attract industry not throw out a few grains of chicken feed and hope something will happen.

This picture, is a good for show how growth is the space technology in the world in this moment...Not all the countries than they have satellite, they have nanosat, but is a good point, because normally the nanosat are development in the countries and no buys to other rich countries o companis of the sector ...

Tywin, could you attach images instead of embedding them? It preserves the posts in case the image is removed, does not suck up their bandwidth and is a more pleasant way to read posts
(also general rule on NSF afaik).

"In the competitive struggle, Egypt obtained the right to host the headquarters of the African Space Agency. The decision was made by the Executive Council of the African Union, and will be endorsed by the African leaders at the February 11 summit", the ministry said in a statement.

"We have no doubt that the space agency will work for the benefit of the development of the entire continent, in particular, in space science, remote sensing and other areas", the ministry added.

Now we have to wait, and see how evolve this space program, and what budget will have this agency...

Per the launch contract for next year this is the first sat for Tunisia's Challenge ONE First Generation Constellation which will consist of 30 on orbit satellites launched on Soyuz-2.1a Fregat-M's from multiple cosmodromes starting in 2020:

The first Burmese, Paraguayan, and Moldovan satellites were launched aboard the Cygnus NG-15 spaceship SS Katherine Johnson last February, if anyone's aware.

For an all domestic push from an african space agency, have there been many recent proposals for spaceports in africa? Southern edge of Somalia doesn't seem shabby for both GEO and polar launches...

Not financially viable given huge cost spaceport would need to spend on security. Anybody working there would want danger money.


Would allow Somalians to be the first space pirates.

Turkey last February hatched a plan to build a spaceport in Somalia to support a planned 2028 lunar mission.

South Africa's technology sector could revive the RSA-3 program and even form a joint venture with Cuba's military-owned industry to create a 140 foot tall space rocket with mothballed FROG-7 missiles strapped to the core stage as boosters, given Cuba's fraternal bonds with South Africa. Kenya, Angola, and Namibia could become minor partners in this joint venture, and Cuba afterwards will create a homegrown space rocket with reverse-engineered RSA-3 components that looks like a scaled-up Unha or Simorgh.
