The CSIROscope blog is designed to entertain, inform and inspire by generally digging around in the work being done by our terrific scientists, and leaving the techie speak and jargon for the experts.

We aim to bring you stories from across the vast breadth and depth of our organisation: from the wild sea voyages of our Research Vessel Investigator to the mind-blowing astronomy of our space teams, right through all the different ways our scientists solve national challenges in areas as diverse as health, farming, tech, manufacturing, minerals, energy, oceans, and our environment.
