CSIRO’s iconic Parkes radio telescope – fondly known as ‘The Dish’ – will get a new receiver that will significantly increase the amount of sky it can see at any one time, enabling new science and supporting local innovation in the space sector.
Mengyao Xue from ICRAR-Curtin and Fei Qin from ICRAR-UWA have been awarded the Ken and Julie Michael Prizes for 2019.
A violent explosion in a distant galaxy has broken the record for the brightest source of high-energy light in the Universe.
A radio telescope in the Western Australian outback has captured a spectacular new view of the centre of the galaxy in which we live, the Milky Way.
The direction in which a galaxy spins depends on its mass, researchers have found. A team of astrophysicists analysed 1418 galaxies and found that small ones are likely to spin on a different axis to large ones.
Scientists have processed 400 gigabytes of data a second as they tested data pipelines for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) telescope.
