We have a stellar history in the space sector from radio astronomy research, to managing complex facilities and observing Earth from above, to supporting data and manufacturing supply chains.
One of our postdoctoral researchers gives us the lowdown on why communication is a key skill for scientists, and what it was like taking part in Fresh Science.
Our scientists accidentally stumbled upon a pulsar (a highly magnetized rotating neutron star). This chance discovery was made thanks to the ASKAP telescope.
Pop on your spacesuit and slide on your moon-boots. Our Moon Quiz is about to test how out-of-this-world your Moon knowledge really is.
There ain't no party like a space party! It’s been 50 years since Australia helped broadcast humankind’s first steps on the Moon around the world. See how our Parkes and Tidbinbilla sites celebrated.
Australia has always contributed to wider space research, and we haven’t left the atmosphere to do so. See how you could work in the space sector.
Researchers find movement on Mars! It’s in the gullies. And it can tell us more about gully erosion here on Earth.
Synthetic biology could be used to create ‘living memorials’ for a future Mars colony, 100 years from now.
As we look back to celebrate the 50th anniversary of that lunar landing, there comes another call. Mars. What's needed to get us there?
Where were you when humans first stepped on the Moon? If you weren't alive, how has that 'giant leap' shaped your life? We asked our staff for their best Moon memories ...
When Neil Armstrong stepped on to the Moon 50 years ago this month, Australians saw the images first. Australia even defied bad weather to bring the historic images to the world.
If there was an up and down in space, Australia would be on top of the Earth looking at the centre of the galaxy - perfectly placed for the next race to the moon.
The Dish is an Aussie classic, set at our Parkes radio telescope. Most of the film is based on fact, but what was added for the sake of a (rollicking) good yarn?
