If we consider the foundation to how communities are built and connected, we must explore the limitations that exist. These limitations can be anything from geographic characteristics such as mountains that split two groups to language barriers that may prevent communication between two individuals. The magnitude of each barrier can be measured by the impact that it creates, such as opportunities that are lost, or more importantly, how the majority within a population has greater access to some resources, while others in the minority do not.
Our gateway to collaboration tagline is a Company promise that we make to our community of business leaders, policy-makers, and scientists. It refers to our continued commitment to build and foster relationships between trusted individuals that we think bring value and measurable impact to scientific projects and business goals.
We are in a joint venture with Roche Australia and Deloitte to develop equitable, resilient and sustainable healthcare innovation for deployment in Australia, before taking our solution to the wider context of Roche’s international activities. We do this by combining expertise knowledge of sociotechnical healthcare system design and supply chain surveillance. Adding space technology capabilities to our innovative designs, we can use real-time data to analyse and predict factors that can cause healthcare blockades and prevent access to patient medicines.
Plants may help establish Space settlements, but we cannot solely rely on plants. When the company was first formed, our mission was clear and simple: create the niche for Space Biology and bring plants closer to Space. However, this image doesn’t quite grasp the importance of plants in developing communities. And more so, we wouldn’t be “bringing” plants to Space, they would instead be grown there. We are currently exploring ways to expand our industry, such that we can improve society, health and education.
We are entering a time when a global response restores the strength in humanity, and when innovation can rapidly change our lives. We call on the citizens of the world to support the development of Space settlements, which must be built on the vision of civilians for supporting life and not solely for political or military campaigns.
With growing interest of terraforming other planets, like Mars, and these opportunities becoming more realistic for companies worldwide, we still need to think about the implications of reshaping environments that could host human life. According the European Space Agency there may be over 120 million objects orbiting the Earth. This is waste over the course of 60 years. However, it is possible that these estimates are skewed against the rapid growth of rocket technology in the last twenty years. We can therefore expect that the rate at which space debris increases in volume will correlate with advances in technology and ambition to send more materials into space.
We aim to use the knowledge we obtain from our research-led projects to inform current projects on Earth and future projects in Space. We explore various themes within science, including agriculture, engineering and health science so we can start thinking how to build the infrastructure for Space settlements. We are driving innovation using a research-led approach that takes and pushes the capabilities of high-quality space technology and data to inform projects on Earth.
Our future success on other planets depends whether we can grow our own food, have access to healthcare, and be self-sustainable. But it is not only about producing edible crops or maintaining healthy Space settlements, it’s about having the systems and technology that maintains a steady supply of these resources. This is the key to sustaining life on Earth and other planets.
It is about strengthening the bonds and connections between individuals, to impose a sense of duty and responsibility to everyone, to manage healthcare systems, governments or aid for the collective good of the society and open the system for new ideas. And of course, the duty to protect the environment. Our “gateway to collaboration” ideology emphasise our role in our community to help business leaders, policy-makers, and scientists establish long-lasting partnerships.
As a Community Interest Company we are committed to driving measurable impact and innovation to those that will benefit the most from it. We firmly believe education should be more application-focused, and teach the importance of change, innovation, and how we can work to minimise our impact on the environment.
We will delay the official launch of our AcademyPASS platform to 2022. We have been working hard on the policy for each virtual class and workshop, but due to the challenges this year have been unable to secure staff to work flexibly and lead these classes.
