Introduction

In this episode, I chat with space lawyer Donna Lawler, the Principal at Azimuth Advisory, a firm that provides advice and assistance to Governments and businesses who are engaged in space activities.

Donna is a commercial space lawyer with decades of experience working with Optus Satellite, and other Aussie space companies.

We talk about the intricacies of space contracts, current developments in the Australian space industry, and what the Moon Agreement might mean for Australian companies who want to mine space resources.
