Greg is a Special Advisor to the Director-General—the discussions surrounding this important project were extremely welcoming, according to Moody, who spoke about operations and roles wherein Space Australia benefit the country. Also in the conversation were Lease Back Options for the site.

The group will meet again in six weeks to follow up and continue the talks aimed at the creation of a Spaceport in Australia.

Additionally, Mr. Moody just completed a journey to the U.S., where he was updated by U.S. Space Officials,  and he has now been able to reduce the current cost of $45 million for a up and running Spaceport down to $12.5 million. Certainly a most productive trip.
