Few people know or recall the story of the last person to walk on the Moon during the 1972, Apollo 17 mission. But that is about to change with the release of a new film called ‘The Last Man on the Moon’ and an Australian speaking tour hosted by our very own astronomer, Dr Lisa Harvey-Smith.
Dr Lisa Harvey-Smith and colleagues estimated the mass of a super massive black hole using data captured by ATCA and ASKAP.
We’ve used our Parkes telescope to help trace the origin of the Big Bird neutrino to a galaxy 9.1 billion light years away.
For a human, turning 43 might not be a big deal. But for an antenna that’s named Deep Space Station 43, well, turning the same age as your ‘designation’ is a little more special.
Our award-winning phased array feed (PAF) technology will soon head to the northern hemisphere to be installed on the world’s second largest single-dish radio telescope. At 100 metres in diameter, the Max Planck Institute for Radioastronomy’s (MPIfR) Effelsberg radio dish, located just outside of Bonn, Germany, is the largest dish in Europe and second largest
You think you’ve got a difficult Easter egg hunt this year? We’re searching for EMU eggs in about 70 million galaxies – it’s going to be some egg-hausting work.
Last month we heard the announcement that gravitational waves had finally been observed – 100 years after their existence was predicted by Einstein. This was the biggest scientific announcement since the discovery of the Higgs Boson, and for good reason; it impacts the way we understand how the Universe works. But what actually happened when
A newly discovered fast radio burst six billion years in the making will help us to weigh the universe
You might have heard about the Square Kilometre Array, and how it will transform the way we understand the Universe, but have you ever stopped to think what it takes to build the world’s largest radio telescope?
