Sonification is a technique for converting data into sound. It could transform the study of distant worlds.
Astronomers are making new discoveries about our galaxy thanks to a more detailed map of the Milky Way.
It's difficult to get jets - powerful, lightning fast particles - to give up their secrets. The new Square Kilometre Array radio telescope could hold the key to solving jets' mysteries.
What did Isaac Newton, Captain Cook and Eddie Mabo all have in common? Each, in their own way, looked to the heavens to make sense of the world, and the importance of their place in it.
A new telescope aims to figure out what became of the universe's original atoms once the first stars began to shine.
Hundreds of images of thousands of galaxies have given astronomers one of the most detailed galaxy studies ever compiled.
What's particularly exciting about "first light" images from South Africa's MeerKAT radio telescope is that they prove Africa is a rising star in the world of astronomy.
Collaboration is one of the keys to making African science soar: when the continent's universities work together, they can produce amazing results.
The Gaia catalogue’s incredible precision is only possible due to accurate tracking of Gaia itself from the ground.
The OzGRav Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery will enable Australian researchers to be at the forefront of gravitational wave astronomy.
Astronomers have found an Earth-like planet orbiting our nearest neighbour, the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri. So any chance that planet may be habitable?
Scientists have finally found an Earth-like planet we may actually be able to visit.
The vast majority of matter in the universe is plasma: electrically charged gas. Scientists are untangling how dust interacts with plasma both in space and experimentally closer to home.
The annual Perseid meteor shower gives us a glimpse of remnants from the early formation of the solar system.
The drive the get more women involved in science should start at an early age. But as one space researcher found out, girls can get nudged out of science at school.
The Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope could help reveal how the universe evolved.
You can't just buy a radio telescope receiver off the shelf. So CSIRO has been hard at work building receivers for the world's largest telescopes using the very latest technology.
The observation of gravitational waves from a second black hole merger implies there are many more black holes in the universe than scientists had previously anticipated.
A look at some of the more obscure methods astronomers use to detect planets around other stars, in the second of a two-part series on finding world's elsewhere in the universe.
The find by citizen scientists of at least 40 galaxies in a cluster more than a billion light years away is the astronomical equivalent of finding a needle in a haystack.
