The Wow Factor
The Space Precinct at Perth Airport will be home to some of Perth's most amazing architectural designed buildings, the first of which will be the Space Museum complex that will be designed to teach the community about Space, house major space industry events, introduce and teach space to students among many other exciting activities.
The Space Museum complex will also house two very important capabilities to the Australian Space Industry which will be the state of the art Lunar Simulant Facility being the biggest in the world designed for Artemis missions returning humans to the moon as well as space resource utilization, the second facility will be a Dedicated Clean Room which will be used to build vehicles that will be launched into space.
Visitors to the Space Museum Complex will be able to view both the Lunar Simulant Facility and Clean Room from the upper level of the museum and will get a first hand experience of real space missions which will be the first of its kind in the world.
