About ASBX.

The Australian Space Biology Symposium (ASBS) was established in 2019 with the vision of bringing together the international research and industry community in order to bridge the gap between basic science and technology for humans in space. In turn, these technologies can be applied here on Earth. This year, the Australian Space Biology x Health Summit (ASBX) hopes to inspire our audience yet again to "think further" about the big questions of humanity and space. What exactly is the next big discovery waiting in space biology? Similarly in 2020, the first Australian Space Health Symposium (ASHS) embraced the theme of “how to thrive, not just survive”. These two paths have converged in ASBX 2021.  Bringing in the innovation and problem-solving possibilities in the space STEM arena and you have the most forward-thinking space summit in the Southern Hemisphere.

Join us and see for yourself the endless possibilities of space biology and health.
