Lockheed Martin Space’s Regional Director for Australia and New Zealand David Ball said Lockheed Martin Australia was proud to donate the Space Café for the exhibition and help inspire young people to learn about space.
“As the word’s largest and most diverse space business we are proud to support Questacon’s new visitor experience – Mission to Mars,” Mr Ball said.
“Australia’s space industry is growing rapidly and gaining significant respect internationally.
“If it is to continue to flourish we need to attract and engage our best and brightest young minds and inspire them to consider a career in space.
Deputy Director Questacon Kate Driver said the science centre was delighted to have the opportunity to host the Lockheed Martin Australia Space Café.
“This experience has been very popular with our visitors to Mission to Mars and helps spark discussions about gravity and space,” she said.
