An international research team has just returned from a voyage of deep sea discovery in Australia’s eastern abyss. Check out the mysterious creatures they found in the deepest, darkest chasms of the ocean.
Led by Museums Victoria, Sampling the Abyss is a world-first survey to sample life in Australia’s eastern abyss using our research vessel, Investigator. Here’s a photo album of just a few of the benthic denizens of the abyss.
Did you catch our marvellous clip of a surprise squid attack? Here it is, and here’s the story behind the footage.
There’s no agreed international approach for how to measure and report on changing nutrients, so we brought together as many international scientists as possible, put them on our research vessel Investigator and as our friend Rihanna would say, we sent them out to sea to work, work, work, work, work, work!.
Earth-like planets, Antarctic sea voyages, 3D-printed body parts and a big buzz about bees – February was a huge month in science news. How well do you remember the discoveries of last month?<\p>
Episode 2 of Interronauts—the CSIRO podcast—has Jesse, Sophie, and Adrian discussing new ways to make graphene, the reliability of VPNs, and chatting with Asaesja Young live (podcast live) from Antarctica!
In the pilot episode of Interronauts, the CSIRO podcast, Jesse, Sophie, and Adrian talk about menopausal whales, panda thumbs, Tasmanian tiger brains, and frisky wrens. They also have a chat with Dr Lisa Harvey-Smith about the launch of the new ASKAP radio telescope, and discuss research around CSIRO: mouse plagues and trips to Antarctica.
The team on board our research vessel, Investigator, are hunting down ancient phytoplankton to study their DNA.
The RV Investigator provides a shipload of opportunities for science, media, art, and more. Welcome aboard the good ship science.
