Our next-generation radio telescope just created an image of the cosmos with the most number of ‘beams’ ever produced to date, trained to the one patch of sky.
This Europe Day we celebrate an important partnership with the European Union and the European Space Agency, which will allow more sharing of scientific expertise and access to their observation satellite fleet.
Want to see some cool science images? Yeah, we thought so. We’ve made a list of the top seven science images of the week for your viewing pleasure.
Once completed the ‘Five hundred metre Aperture Spherical Telescope’ (FAST) will be the biggest telescope in the world, and the eye at its centre was made right here in Australia.
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.

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
