Past events

11am–12pm 12 December 2017
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound objects in the Universe and are excellent cosmological probes. Their power as cosmological probes, however, is currently...
11am–12pm 7 December 2017
The presence of dust in galaxies significantly alters their observed spectral energy distributions. If not properly accounted for, this will lead to incorrect estimates for many...
74" Telescope at Mount Stromlo
10–11.30am 3 December 2017
Take a walking tour of the Mount Stromlo Observatory and learn about one of Canberra’s oldest sites. Mount Stromlo Observatory has been carrying out astronomical...
1–2pm 1 December 2017
AGN are episodic in nature, cycling through periods of activity and quiescence. Their life-cycle is key for understanding the impact they have on their host galaxy. In this talk,...
9am–5pm 1 December 2017
Mt. Stromlo Student Seminars
9am–5pm 30 November 2017
Mt. Stromlo Student Seminars
11am–12pm 23 November 2017
Protoplanetary disks are the birthplaces of planets but the spatial resolution at long wavelengths has so far been insufficient to resolve the critical 5-30 AU region. The Atacama...
11am–12pm 16 November 2017
A key missing piece in a predictive theory of star formation is the link between scales of individual stars and star clusters up to the scales of entire galaxies. LEGUS, a HST...
11am–12pm 13 November 2017
New instruments and projects at ESO.
74" Telescope at Mount Stromlo
10–11.30am 12 November 2017

2–3pm 10 November 2017
Galaxies grow through the accretion of gas, minor mergers and major mergers in the hierarchical picture of galaxy evolution. The merging of two gas-rich galaxies cause gas to be...
11am–12pm 9 November 2017
Thanks to nuclear astro-physics collaboration, we now have good understanding of the origin of elements from carbon to zinc, and theoretical models have well reproduced the...
11am–12pm 7 November 2017
The theme of the talk is how different modes of stellar feedback affect the evolution of galaxies and how, with appropriate care, we can constrain the role of the historically...
11am–12pm 2 November 2017
In April 2018, the second Data Release of the ESA Gaia mission is expected and will once again broaden our astrometrical horizon. The week before, the team of the stellar...
11am–12pm 30 October 2017
The orbital parameters of binary stars at intermediate periods (100-1000 d) are difficult to measure with conventional methods and are very incomplete. For the past couple of...
11am–12pm 26 October 2017
Our current understanding of galaxy formation is based on the presence of an elusive matter component: the Cold Dark Matter (CDM). Such a component is extremely successful...
2.30–3.30pm 11 October 2017
Our knowledge of planets other than the eight "classical" Solar System bodies is in its infancy. We are discovering thousands of planets orbiting stars other than our own, and...

11am–12pm 21 September 2017
Strongly gravitationally lensed galaxies are veritable gems for our understanding of high-redshift galaxy evolution, allowing us (at least in the few most fortuitous cases) to...
