Rio Tinto enters the space race


Rio Tinto has joined the Australian Remote Operations for Space and Earth (AROSE) consortium in a bid to join members in advancing Australia’s world-leading position in remote operations.

AROSE is a not-for-profit, industry-led consortium with a vision for Australia to be the trusted leader of remote operations on Earth and in space.

The Australian government is aiming to triple the size of the nation’s space sector by 2030, adding an additional $12 billion to the economy and up to 20,000 new jobs.
