There Is An Australian Space Research Center Whose Acronym Becomes ‘ARSE’

Earlier this week, the government announced that Australia would be getting its own space agency.

It might surprise you that Australia doesn’t already have a space agency.

The country has been involved in the space field for decades — in 1967, it was among the first countries to launch a satellite. The aeronautical industry is worth around $420 billion, and the move is set to create thousands of new jobs.

While the government will discuss its long-term plans at the 68th International Astronautical Congress, but the concept is already getting some traction online.

Yesterday, the Australia Research & Space Exploration website came to people’s attention – which bears quite an interesting acronym, ‘ARSE’



While people are still speculating whether this acronym might be a joke but Twitter can’t seem to stop talking about it. Interestingly, American Space Science (ASS) and British Universal Telescope Team (BUTT) have a similar acronym, which leads us to believe that this might not be a joke.
