Hi @future. Was great chatting today.
Australia has sent 14 satelites into space since 1967.
Satelites can be so complicated and expensive that it is normal for many countries to ‘share’ satelites and help each other send them up.
@future: I found a list of 14 Australian satellites that had been launched online, but only 6 were still listed as operational in 2010, the rest had decayed (broken up) or become debris (space junk, not in use).
This list might not have been updated since 2010, but I imagine @Kyler will know for sure!
