Immersive Science III: Astronomy for All Australians

August 17 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm AEST

Realise the power of stars, delve into the latest gravitational wave research, and explore the Universe—all without leaving town. Science communicators and researchers Associate Professor Alan Duffy and Dr Rebecca Allen return to share the latest wonders of Australian-led research in Astronomy through SciVR; an immersive astronomy experience enabled by a virtual reality (VR) smartphone app.

Download the app for free, then come and join in our live viewing party event on Saturday 17 August as you explore the app on your smartphone. Get ready from 1:30pm and the live stream starts at 2pm AEST. Alan and Rebecca share the science of astronomy through a more inclusive experience with an updated app, special close-captioned studio live-stream, and social media Q&A to regional groups and grassroots-organised viewing parties in libraries and other venues across the country.
