Australian Aviation’s sister brand, Space Connect, this week interviewed the man behind Australia’s first permanent rocket launch site at Whalers Way in SA.

He also talks about what the company has learned after the three unsuccessful attempts to blast off a rocket in September, why the Whalers Way location was chosen and what this means for Australia’s space industry.
