ANGELS is a website that assists entrepreneurs in the Australian space industry to navigate Australian and relevant international laws that regulate space activities.
The website is designed to support entrepreneurship and business growth in the Australian space industry by providing helpful, informative resources on applicable laws and regulations.
This project involved six undergraduate law students, under the direction of Duncan Blake, Special Counsel from IALPG.

This guide is free to download so that anyone may use it to help make better experiences!
