11am–12pm 15 September 2016
Modern day galaxies are found to be in a bimodal distribution, both in terms of their morphologies, and in terms of their colors, and these properties are inter-related. In color...
11am–12pm 13 September 2016
There is now little doubt that Lenticular (S0) galaxies are the descendants of spiral galaxies whose star-formation ceased. In this talk I will present some of the evidence we...
2–3pm 9 September 2016
The evolution of galaxies is directly linked to the gas reservoirs surrounding them, known as the circumgalactic medium (CGM). CGM gas flows into galaxies along filaments and...
11am–12pm 8 September 2016
The development of sensitive Near Infra-Red instruments has made it possible to study the galaxy properties at z~2, just 3Gy after the Big Bang. This is expected to be the time...
11am–12pm 1 September 2016
I recently had the rare opportunity to fly on NASA's Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), a Boeing 747 with a 2.5m telescope that flies above 40,000 ft and...
11am–12pm 30 August 2016
The Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) has been designed with a singular focus: a systematic exploration of the night sky at a magnitude level well suited for spectral classification...
11am–12pm 23 August 2016
As part of my PhD thesis I have performed some of the first ever non-LTE spectral line formation calculations, highlighting serious systematic errors in traditional 1D LTE...
Mt Stromlo Observatory Research Offices - Aerial View
10–11.30am 20 August 2016
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...
Mt. Stromlo Observatory
7–9pm 19 August 2016
Mount Stromlo Observatory in conjunction with the Canberra Astronomical Society invite the Canberra community to attend our public observing nights of 2016. Come and see the rings...
11am–12pm 18 August 2016
The introduction of visible integral field spectrographs in the last decade led to major developments in the kinematic classification of galaxies. From two-dimensional stellar...
9am–5pm 12 August 2016
The purpose of AstroSats 2016 is to bring together the astronomical research and satellite engineering communities to explore science cases and astronomical instrumentation...
11am–12pm 11 August 2016
DST Group has been actively involved in research into free space optical communications (FSOC) for over a decade, and in this seminar I will present an overview of this programme...
11am–12pm 9 August 2016
Magnetic fields are an elemental part of the interstellar medium (ISM) that have a large impact on the dynamics of the ISM on various spatial scales. Here, I'll talk about the...
11am–12pm 4 August 2016
In interstellar and intergalactic space, densities are far lower and shock speeds far higher than anything that can be produced in a terrestrial laboratory. Electrons and ions at...
11am–12pm 2 August 2016
Measurement of the matter distribution in the universe is one of the key components in observational cosmology. This provides an important test of structure formation scenarios...
11am–12pm 26 July 2016
Studies of data from the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope have revealed new and striking features of the Milky Way, from the giant structures known as the Fermi Bubbles to a...

10–11.30am 23 July 2016
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...
2–3pm 21 July 2016
A new method for measuring the cosmological parameters governing the expansion history of the universe is introduced. The method uses the Alcock-Paczynski (AP) test applied to the...
