NASA Representatives to Australia





A number of senior NASA officials were stationed in Australia to represent NASA.

This list (as you can see) is very incomplete and in its earliest stages. What is here is really just a thumbnail sketch for now.

The plan is to add a page for as many of these people as possible.

I’d be very glad of any help in filling in the details. Contact.
