The Earth Sanctuary Space Observatory has been given the green light from the Chief Minister, Adam Giles, in a surprise announcement at the 2015 Tourism Central Australia Awards held last Friday.

This exciting project will help position Central Australia as a genuine destination in the space discovery field. The 4.5 meter space observatory with deep sky telescope will provide night sky enthusiasts from the world over with a once in a life time opportunity to explore the southern skies in style.
