Come along to The University of Western Australia for Out there!, an exhibition focussed on the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). The SKA radio telescope (which will cost around $3 billion) will be up to 50 times more sensitive than present-day instruments and will revolutionise our understanding of the origin and evolution of the Universe.
Out there! features activities that give insight into the physics behind Radio Astronomy. The name of the exhibition, Out there!, refers to 'out in space' as well as the outback of Western Australia - one of the two short-listed locations for the SKA radio telescope (the other is Southern Africa) to be decided in 2011-12.
Where: The Molecular and Chemical Sciences Building, UWA
When: 9-5pm, 4-15 May 2009 (including Saturday 9th May)
The exhibition is open to all but is specifically targeted at secondary school students.
