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.
ICRAR-Curtin researcher Dr Natasha Hurley-Walker has been named Western Australian Young Tall Poppy Scientist of the Year at the 2017 WA Young Tall Poppy Science Awards.
BRITE space mission reveals the origins of fundamental structures in the wind of the supergiant star zeta PuppisOctober 25, 2017
ICRAR astronomer Paul Luckas has collaborated with a Canadian-led team of astronomers who have discovered observational evidence for how features at the surface of the massive southern supergiant star zeta Puppis induce the formation of fundamental structures in its wind.
An optical fibre-based synchronisation system designed by an Australian team from ICRAR has been selected for SKA-mid in South Africa, with a system designed by Tsinghua University chosen for SKA-low.
