Researchers Prof DG Blair; Dr M Boer
Brief description The project is aimed at providing student participation in frontier research using robotic astronomy and novel data analysis methods. It will focus on the study of the most violent explosions in the Universe - cosmological gamma ray bursts. These cataclysmic events possibly herald the formation of the most exotic objects in the Universe - black holes. It provides an exciting opportunity for students to be trained in robotic astronomy, supercomputing, image analysis and signal processing.
