Description

Immersive Science II: Revealing the Invisible Universe (Adults) (Doors open at 6:30)

Love science? Enjoy delicious craft beers? Then join us at Mt. Goat Brewery to learn how Australian scientists are leading the way in probing the Universe through ripples in the fabric of space-time and providing unique views of the microscopic world. Explore this Universe through the use of ground-breaking Virtual Reality technology and make new discoveries through Q&A with the speakers all while enjoying an award winning beer.

Prior to the Virtual Reality tour please download the free SciVR app for your smartphone.

This initiative is supported by the Australian Government as part of National Science Week. This program has been made possible with the generous support of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav) and Swinburne University of Technology.

Speakers

  • Professor Alan Duffy is a computational astrophysicist at Swinburne University of Technology creating baby universes on supercomputers to understand how galaxies like our Milky Way form and grow within vast halos of invisible dark matter. When not exploring simulated universes Alan lectures in physics as well as science communication at Swinburne University. Every fortnight Alan ​examines​ breaking science ​developments ​during his space segment ​on​ ABC Breakfast News TV​ and​ ABC Radio Melbourne​​ with Clare Bowditch​​ and ​as​ a regular on Ten’s The project.

  • Dr Rebecca Allen ​completed​ her PhD in astrophysics at Swinburne University of Technology. Her research ​focuses​ on using galaxy sizes, measured from Hubble Space telescope images, to reveal clues about their growth and evolution going all the way back to when the Universe was barely a billion years old. Now, she uses her expertise and enthusiasm to help inspire the next generation of scientists by communicating the amazing research being done at Swinburne University across all areas of STEM.
