Immersive Science: The Next Frontier in Australian Astronomy (Adults)

Join astronomers Dr Alan Duffy and Dr Katie Mack to guide you through the Universe in an immersive science event blending a live talk and virtual reality. Learn how Australia’s astronomers explore our Solar System, map out galaxies and see black holes using the SciVR app for your personal VR tour.

This event is held in the Mountain Goat Brewery, allowing adults to embark on this exploration with a beer* in hand. The entire evening will be streamed online allowing remote audiences to enjoy the experience just as well as those at the brewery. We'd love for you to stay around after the event share a drink with us and the other attendees, which can be purchased from the brewery.
