To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled, the petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that:

Whereas space exploration involves the very highest levels of technological expertise and scientific endeavour that has proved beneficial to mankind; and

Whereas Australia would face a deterioration of living standards and economy without access to such technologies; and

The Australian Government should support the worth of peaceful space exploration at an international level, at the United Nations and with individual nations; and

The Australian Government should place a far stronger emphasis on the value of the space sciences, and also encourage industrial support for space technology programs; and

The Australian Government should undertake to support biomedical space experiments proposed by Australian medical researchers.
