Researchers Prof BP Schmidt
Brief description The Southern Sky Survey will make significant, high profile discoveries in Astronomy ranging from understanding objects like Pluto, to discovering the first black holes in the distant Universe. These breakthroughs will capture the imagination of potential young scientists and technologists, and will lead Australians to undertaking studies in these vital areas. To achieve our discoveries, we will create and serve Australia's largest publicly available database. This will create economic and scientific benefits by training a significant number of young Australians in using massive data sets, data manipulation, and problem solving.
