Event Details

About the talk It’s been 100 years since explorers from Mawson's Australasian Antarctic Expedition came across a shiny black object lying on top of the ice – the first meteorite to be discovered in Antarctica. Today the frozen continent is a centre for astronomical investigations into cosmic background radiation, neutrinos and telescopes that peer into the secrets of the cosmos. Join Michael Burton to discover more about the pioneering science of Antarctica.

About the speaker Professor Michael Burton is a lecturer in astronomy and physics in the Department of Astrophysics at UNSW. His research revolves around applying the techniques of observational infrared astronomy to the understanding of our Galaxy. He is also heavily involved with the development of Antarctic astronomy.
