11am–12pm 24 November 2016
Massive galaxies at high redshift are fed gas from the cosmic web by narrow, dense streams of cold gas, penetrating supersonically through hot, dilute halos. This source of gas is...
11am–12pm 22 November 2016
The recent discovery of gravitational waves emitted by binary black holes suggests these sources will be detected in large number in the next few years. Detected signals can be...
11am–12pm 17 November 2016
In geodesy - the science of measuring the Earth - we are interested in the shape, the rotational behaviour and the gravitational field of our planet. Combining measurements to...
11am–12pm 10 November 2016
I will discuss the conditions for disk galaxies to produce superbubbles that can break out of the disk and produce galactic winds. With the help of 2D hydrodynamic simulations, we...
Andrea Boyd at the European Astronaut Centre
6–7pm 8 November 2016
Andrea Boyd, a Mechatronic Engineer from The University of Adelaide, is now stationed at the European Astronaut Centre: the only Australian International Space Station (ISS)...
11am–12pm 3 November 2016
