It’s go for launch.
A real pleasure to support local space industry companies that are taking us our of this world ????
There is no sovereign manufacturer of solid rocket propellant and subsequently solid rocket motors (SRM’s) in Australia, which means all SRM’s are currently imported.
Our project with Black Sky Aerospace proposes to manufacture solid rocket propellant and SRM’s locally for the civilian market initially (export and defence markets to follow) at far more economical prices and with quicker turnaround times.

There are over 1000 satellites with a mass over 150 kg needing to be launched annually by 2023 to specific orbits and there is just not enough capacity to get them up into space. Gilmour Space solve that problem, they are developing 2 launch vehicles to take 100 kg and 400 kg to Low Earth Orbit at a consistently cheaper cost than all known competition.Check out the AMGC project here https://www.amgc.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/GILMOUR-SPACE-COMPOSITE-RELEASE-FINAL.pdf
Graphene development company SPARC TECHNOLOGIES has demonstrated that its graphene product in solution can adsorb gold and silver from mine tailings dumps.Adsorption, not to be confused with absorption, is a process in which molecules are held loosely on the surface of an adsorbent.The company, which has licenced graphene-based technologies from the University of Adelaide,
has shown its product outperformed commercially available adsorbents,
opening up a large potential market treating minesite dumps.https://www.aumanufacturing.com.au/sparc-uses-graphene-to-extract-gold-from-tailingshttps://sparctechnologies.com.au/Feel free to reach out to me and connect here:
A micro factory is a series of modules that can take a variety of different waste materials and transform them into a new product. Textiles for example can be combined with glass in the micro factory to be converted into hard green ceramics.The ideal location for these micro factories is where the waste is being collected so you can have communities able to access them and turn their own waste into a resource, a small-scale industry.https://www.abc.net.au/austory/the-tipping-point/13164736
