NCRIS Capability - Optical and Radio Astronomy

Provided by   NCRIS

Full description Australian astronomy is acknowledged internationally as world-class with strengths in ground-based optical and radio observational work, backed by complementary abilities in theory and computation. Indeed in the past decade Australian researchers have played leading roles in major discoveries such as the existence of dark energy, the acceleration of the universe, a new type of galaxy, a unique double pulsar and planets orbiting other stars. The $45 million the Australian Government is committing to astronomy through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) is supporting a range of projects to help ensure that Australian astronomers stay internationally competitive and have access to the facilities they require.
