This morning, Rebecca Tayler from the Woomera Baker Observatory discussed our collaboration with the London based international aerospace company Ultra Group on our STEM and Space based tourism projects and community initiatives. The Ultra Group segment starts @ 2 hrs :37 mins into the show.Recently, the Woomera Baker Observatory and the Andamooka Observatory were recognised by the London based international aerospace company Ultra Group for our STEM and Space based tourism projects and community initiatives.

‘Ultra relies heavily on teamwork to deliver to customers in the field and to see others in very remote areas supporting their community in the face of adversity shows courage​ and spirit. Their resilience and tenacity are admirable and fosters the ‘can do’ attitude that Ultra strives to achieve.

These STEM related organisations align well with Ultra’s ASPIRE values:
Agile: adapting to current difficult conditions
Innovating: challenging to think in new ways
Rewarding: seeking out and rewarding positive contribution’

Well done and thank you to Rebecca, Richard, Leila, Dave the Mad Scientist, RAAF Base Woomera (20SQN) and Broccoli the Adventure Dog for making public outreach astronomy super fun and accessible. Thank you Ultra Group
