Brian Schmidt Public Lecture: Exploring the last frontier

Academy of Science 25 February 2013 2

Over the past 60 years Australia has played a leading role in humanity’s exploration of the Cosmos. From the establishment of radio astronomy, to the observations that underpin the standard model of the Universe, Australia has contributed using innovative instruments that incorporate world-leading technology.

Brian will describe Australia’s role in helping establishing our view of the Universe, and speculate how our participation in the next generation of radio and optical telescopes will help unlock some of the Universe’s great outstanding mysteries.
