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 ...
