Judith Collins: Minister for Space on speaking at the Space Symposium in the US and putting NZ on the global map

View descriptionShare

The Minister for Space has been working on our space image over in the US. 

Judith Collins spoke yesterday morning at the Space Symposium as New Zealand’s first Space Minister, putting us on the global stage. 

She told Mike Hosking that Rocket Lab has done an incredible job at putting New Zealand on the American space map with the work Peter Beck has done with NASA. 

In 2019 a survey was done on the NZ space sector, valuing it at $1.9 billion, but Collins thinks that by now it should be three or more times larger than that. 

She said that this is a sector with enormous growth and an extraordinary level of competency.
