11am–12pm 9 February 2016
The bulge is one of the oldest, yet very metal-rich Galactic components suggesting that it experienced early, rapid chemical enrichment. Yet, the first, metal-poor stars to have...
11am–12pm 4 February 2016
The deferred photometric pipeline of SNLS uses only photometry to detect and classify type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia). The advantages of a photometric sample include larger number of...
12–6pm 22 January 2016
This summer the Mount Stromlo Observatory hosted two undergraduate student programs that develop skills in astronomy, astrophysics and space engineering, and a broader...
10–11.30am 19 December 2015
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...
11am–12pm 16 December 2015
11am–12pm 10 December 2015
11am–12pm 9 December 2015
Recent molecular observations indicate supersonic cloud-cloud collision is one of the important modes of O star formation. The O star formation regions studied so far include...
11am–12pm 1 December 2015
Filamentary structures are ubiquitous in the interstellar medium, yet their formation, internal structure and longevity have not been studied in detail. In this talk I present a...
11am–12pm 26 November 2015
11am–12pm 24 November 2015
We present spectral line images of [CI] 809 GHz, CO J=1-0 110...
11am–12pm 19 November 2015
The main obstacle to understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies is our limited knowledge of the role played by gas. In particular, we still lack measurements of the...
11am–12pm 12 November 2015
Sub-millimeter galaxies (SMGs) are the most dusty galaxies in the high-redshift Universe, with large infrared luminosities powered by intense star formation activity. Although...
11am–12pm 10 November 2015
Data from the VVV NIR survey of the inner Milky Way show that our Galaxy has a strongly peanut-shaped bulge. Extending the analysis to larger radii with other surveys shows that...
11am–12pm 29 October 2015
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people developed complex knowledge systems around the sun, moon, and stars. Stellar positions and properties (such as declination, colour,...
11am–12pm 27 October 2015
The spectra of AGN host galaxies contain emission lines excited by radiation from both massive stars and the AGN accretion disk. Standard calibrations for the star formation rate...
10–11.30am 24 October 2015
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...
11am–12pm 22 October 2015
Thanks to numerous ground and space-based surveys, we are now aware of over 1800 planets orbiting other stars, with another nearly 5000 candidates from the Kepler Mission awaiting...
11am–12pm 20 October 2015
I will present some new results pertaining to our current understanding of the structure and substructure of the stellar components of the Milky Way, including possible relations...
11.30am–12pm 13 October 2015
As a part of Mahalo-Subaru project, we performed a deep narrow-band imaging with Subaru/MOIRCS in the SXDF-CANDELS field. We construct samples of [OIII] emission line galaxies at...
