Movies and public lectures on astronomy & astrophysics.
Astronomers at ANU have found the fastest-growing black hole known in the Universe, describing it as a monster that devours a mass equivalent to our Sun every two days.
In this conversation recorded at the Australian National University on 23 August 2015 Nobel Laureate Professor Brian Schmidt and Dr Neil deGrasse Tyson discuss the importance of science, the democratisation of space and the possibility of alien life.
Professor Martin Asplund's work in solar and stellar physics has changed the way in which we approach atomic and nuclear physics and a wide range of astrophysics, from planetary science and stellar physics through to Galactic archaeology and cosmology.
Scientists have captured the early death throes of supernovae for the first time and found that the universe's benchmark explosions are more varied than expected.
Astronomers have glimpsed a far off and ancient star exploding, not once, but four times.
The Violent Universe course explores the deadliest places in the universe, from black holes to supernovae.
