About us

Welcome to Milky-Way.Kiwi

Milky-Way.Kiwi is a New Zealand cosmic source of astronomy news, space exploration and stargazing, celebrating space for Kiwis. #yeswespace

We take a Kiwi perspective on the world news, look for “what’s in it for New Zealand” and use our knowledge and expertise to bring space closer to the public here in the country with the most beautiful night sky in the world (when is not raining).

Ponder with us on the Grand Questions of the Universe: Are we alone? What is life? What is the future of humankind?

“Space exploration is not about rockets, abstract physics or growing plants on the Moon. It is about the people who are interested in all these subjects, about curiosity and new frontiers.”

Turn off the light when you not using it to protect the environment from light pollution. 

Look up and appreciate the Universe.
