​The Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory

Take an awe-inspiring aerial tour through Australia’s future site of the Square Kilometre Array. Its home, the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory, already hosts telescopes conducting ground-breaking research alongside world-class support infrastructure. (YouTube video on Department of Industry, Innovation and Science Channel)

Yamaji Art

For several years, indigenous artists from the Yamaji Art Centre in Geraldton have been working with CSIRO and Curtin University scientists at the Australian SKA site. This relationship has inspired both parties, resulting in a deeper understanding of traditional stories of the night sky as well as some amazing new art work. (YouTube video on the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science Channel).


The GLEAM Survey

Astronomers using the Murchison Widefield Array (an SKA precursor) have produced one of the largest radio surveys of the sky ever. The survey will be used to explore remnants of explosions from ancient stars, the beginning and end of supermassive black holes, and what happens when clusters of galaxies collide. (Videos of the GLEAM survey on the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research site).
