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 2 June 2016
Protoplanetary disks are the birth cradles of planets, but the planet formation process is still not well understood. Of particular interest are the so-called transitional disks:...
11am–12pm 26 May 2016
Unconscious or implicit bias is proliferating as a topic of interest within scholarly research and social policy, and within public discourse. Unconscious bias has been linked...

11am–12pm 19 May 2016
The Milky Way is the galaxy which in principle can be observed the best as it can be resolved into individual stars of which we can measure their 6D phase space coordinates as...
11am–12pm 12 May 2016
The Laser Interferometric Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) has detected gravitational waves from the merger of two 30Msun black holes (Abbott et al. 2016). An earlier...
11am–12pm 3 May 2016
Star clusters form in a tumultuous process of gas accretion, turbulent collapse, and dispersal, in which their initial properties, like structure, density, and boundedness, are...
Mt. Stromlo Observatory
7–9pm 29 April 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 28 April 2016
The first billion years after the Big Bang poses many open questions: How and when the first stars and galaxies were formed? How does the interplay between baryonic and dark...
11am–12pm 21 April 2016
We present a series of our studies on how HI is accreted, distributed and connected with the formation of optical structures in massive disk galaxies in the low redshift universe...
11am–12pm 19 April 2016
Recently a powerful paradigm has emerged to understand the nature of star-forming galaxies. Their star formation rate, metallicity, and gas mass are set by a balance between star...
11am–12pm 14 April 2016
The Murchison Widefield Array is conducting an all-sky low-frequency radio survey across 70-230 MHz. The GaLactic and Extragalactic All-sky MWA (GLEAM) Survey comprises of over...
11am–12pm 7 April 2016
During the last decade a third window for ground-based astronomy was opened and high energy astrophysics now enables studies up to photon energies of 100 TeV. A wide range of...
1 April – 27 May 2016
As The Australian National University celebrates its 70th anniversary this year our exhibitions will focus on lesser known aspects of University life. The first exhibition...
