At nearly 80-years-old, the owner of his

An engineering and science graduate from The University of Western Australia who works for Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic has given a public lecture at the University Club (September 8) about the program he's leading to build the world's first commercial spaceship.
The Hon Peter
Collier MLA, WA Minister for Aboriginal Affairs; Nyunggai Warren Mundine, Chairman of the Prime Minister's
Indigenous Advisory Council; and Indigenous celebrity chef Mark Olive will be among the speakers at the Indigenous Business,
Enterprise and Corporations Conference (IBECC) 2014.
With electric vehicles soaring in popularity worldwide and 23 renewable energy vehicle (REV) charging stations around WA, a new program is a win-win for green transport, and for the student who developed it.
