Astronomy & Astrophysics 

Brings us face-to-face with the deepest workings of the universe, on the grandest scale, at the intersection between observational and theoretical physics.


The International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) 

The International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) was founded in September 2009 with the specific purpose of supporting Australia’s bid to host the world’s largest radio telescope and one of the largest scientific endeavours in history, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA).

The ARC Centre of Excellent for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav) 


The mission of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav) is to capitalise on the historic first detections of gravitational waves to understand the extreme physics of black holes and warped spacetime, and to inspire the next generation of Australian scientists and engineers through this new window on the Universe.
