Thursday 16 June from 3pm to 5pm

It’s been over 40 years since the Apollo mission landed a man on the moon. As dramatised in the iconic Australian film The Dish, the Parkes Observatory played a pivotal role in communicating with the spacecraft. Fast forward to 2022, did you know NSW is home to a third of all space research in Australia?

So, what’s happening in Space in 2022? And what role is our home, Sydney, playing in connecting with the cosmos?

Learn how the Indigenous understanding of the night sky and the ways they navigated the Australian landscape plays an integral part in space study today.  

Hear why space research is so critical to modern-day life and learn how it’s being used to understand and combat cellular diseases such as cancer.

Join Professor Stefan Williams (USYD), and Professor Robert Fitch (UTS) the leading forces behind The Space Research Network as they discuss what role they are playing with their international colleagues in furthering our understanding of the galaxy.  

Presented in association with University of Technology Sydney.
