Data can be beautiful. Here are our top 10 images from the ASKAP radio telescope data.
To the Milky Way and beyond
A new virtual reality film is the next best thing to visiting our Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory. Join Chris Brayton behind-the-scenes in filming Beyond the Milky Way.
Capturing the Universe in paint and pixels
Parts of the invisible Universe have been captured by Wajarri artist Margaret Whitehurst and by our researchers using the ASKAP radio telescope.
Next phase for ASKAP stargazing begins
Like any new technology, we’re still learning what the ASKAP telescope does best – and how we can wield it to uncover the secrets of the Universe.
Indigenous-owned ground station supports our NovaSAR-1 satellite research facility
We're working with Australia’s first and only Aboriginal owned-and-operated ground station provider to bring NovaSAR-1 data down to Earth.
A thread of the cosmic web: astronomers spot a 50 million light-year galactic filament
Until recently, the Universe's gas filaments have been elusive. But now one was detected with our ASKAP radio telescope.
Bad space weather may make life impossible near Proxima Centauri
We recently detected the signature of fierce space weather from Proxima Cen, which implies an orbiting planet could be blasted with hazardous particles and magnetic fields.
We’ve mapped a million previously undiscovered galaxies beyond the Milky Way. Take the virtual tour here.
Astronomers have mapped about a million previously undiscovered galaxies beyond the Milky Way, in the most detailed survey of the southern sky ever carried out using radio waves.
Negotiating an international astronomy treaty to help reveal the hidden Universe
What goes into building an international astronomy treaty? Our astrophysicist Dr Sarah Pearce represented Australia in the international negotiations to establish the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Observatory as an intergovernmental organisation.
