About the event

#XRACT will be taking advantage of National Science Week’s #SatelliteSelfie to send a message to our politicians. We want you to be a part of the action.

We’ll be using a mix of people and materials to SPELL. IT. OUT. to the Australian Government (because they sure need it).

*A Satellite Selfie??* During National Science Week this year, a satellite will fly over the ACT and  surrounding areas and will capture an image of as much of Canberra and  the people in it as possible to create a time-capsule image of  Australia’s Capital from above.
