The 3rd Regional Galaxy Forum Southeast Asia is taking place at the National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN) branch office in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. In addition to ILOA, the event is co-organized by the Institute of Technology Bandung (ITB). Faculty of the Department of Astronomy at ITB have been a key factor in the development of the regional SEA Galaxy Forum program.

Indonesia, the world’s 4th most populous country, is building 21st Century capabilities and investing in the future of Astronomy and Astronautics to the immediate benefit of students in every class across the archipelago. Scientists at the Bosscha Observatory, ITB and others, continue with plans to construct a 2.5-m class telescope and a 1-m radio telescope at Mount Timau or Mount Rinjani.

LAPAN is planning to complete work on a Space Port and Launch Center at Morotai Island by 2025. This complex is to act as the test site and future operational base of the LAPAN experimental satellite launcher. Last year the Rocket Technology Center conducted a successful static test of the RX 320 booster generating thrust of up to 4.9 tons. This is one of two rockets that will form the building blocks of the 4 stage orbital satellite rocket Roket Pengorbit Satelit (RPS) that is currently in development.
