Steve Davis and Sumen Rai on the Adelaide Show Podcast talking space with Nigel Dobson-KeeffeOn Star Wars Day, May The Fourth, we welcome Sumen Rai back to The Adelaide Show to talk all things Space in South Australia

Sumen tells us about the recent NASA International Space Apps Challenge held in Adelaide.

She also sheds some light into the far corners of South Australia’s space universe, uncovering an international space university, international astronautical conference coming to Adelaide next year, the Mars Society, and the promising outcomes of the local entries in the Space Apps Challenge.

Sumen is quite bullish about our state’s readiness for space and this show will certainly take you on a voyage to some of the super things happening.

Sumen Rai’s day job is with the South Australian Government, facilitating new research and development partnerships between industry, research organisations and government agencies. But if you have been listening to us for a while, you would have heard her in episode 104 in which she mentioned that in her spare time she likes to organise events such as NASA’s Space Apps Challenge. Well, that was held late last month in Adelaide and while the event was one small step for South Australia, the topic of space is a giant leap forward for this podcast.
