The exhibition includes: * Astronomical images from optical telescopes (The World at Night exhibition) and images generated through the use of radio telescopes. * A scale replica of the proposed Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope dish * A 12" (30cm) Meade reflector optical telescope. * A multimedia presentation incorporating: an animation of the proposed SKA site in the Murchison region; "First Light: Eyes to Telescopes" movie with ICRAR Director Professor Peter Quinn, produced by the SPICE team; ICRAR SKA trailer; and a collection of images of astronomical objects taken at infrared, optical, radio and x-ray wavelengths.
A public lecture by Dr Paulo de Souza, CSIRO ICT Centre, Tasmania.
Our Planet and Mars have a common past. Eventually, they will share the same future and some of the incredible technological development for the Martian missions is already being applied on our Planet. This lecture will travel across time, getting an overview on how our knowledge on Mars was built. Images and fresh scientific results will be presented, especially those obtained by scientists working with the NASA's Mars Exploration Rovers mission. The lecture will also show how some of the instruments that equipped the rovers Spirit and Opportunity are being applied on industry, environment or even archaeology.
Congratulations to the staff from the Centre for Offshore Foundations Systems whose staff and expertise have helped UWA to be selected as the host for the 8th International Conference in Physical Modelling in Geotechnics in 2014 current web site: http://www.icpmg2010.ch/.
