- release of Draft Structure, Purview, and Strawman documents
(i) Sun and Space to Earth (SSE)
Understand how activity on the Sun and in space develops throughout the solar system and affects humans and human technology.
(ii) Plasma to Planets (P2P)
Understand evolution from plasma & dust to the present-day Sun, Earth, and other solar system bodies and then beyond.
(iii) Observing Australia, Earth and Planets from Space
Remotely sense and model the atmosphere, climate, oceans, surface, life, and geology of Australia, Earth and other planets and solar system bodies.
Understand the effects of space’s harsh environment on life and technology, develop space technology, and consider how life evolved on Earth and perhaps elsewhere?
