An international team of astronomers has used two of the world's largest radio telescopes to show that a mysterious source of radio bursts is in an astonishingly extreme and unusual environment.
The Aperture Array Verification System (AAVS1) is one of the major milestones in the journey towards delivering the final design for SKA1-low, the Australian arm of the first phase of the SKA telescope.
Professor Melanie Johnston-Hollitt will commence a Professorship at the Curtin University node ICRAR.
Astronomers have used two Australian radio telescopes and several optical telescopes to study complex mechanisms that are fuelling jets of material blasting away from a black hole 55 million times more massive than the Sun.
An Australian scientist has created the most detailed map ever of clouds of high-velocity gas in the Universe around us. The map covers the entire sky and shows curious clouds of neutral hydrogen gas that are moving at a different speed to the normal rotation of the Milky Way.
Picosat Systems and ICRAR have trialled a satellite deployment on a “Zero-G” flight above France.
