Star gazing

Have you heard about the world’s biggest radio telescope being built in the Murchison region of Western Australia?

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is one of the most exciting developments in astronomy in recent years and WA is at the centre of it as a co-host of this huge facility. To support this venture, the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research has been set up by Curtin University and the University of WA to bolster research efforts and spread the word about the SKA. It offers a host of education resources for students, teachers and the general public, including weekly online lectures, citizen science projects and public stargazing gatherings.
