Allegations of abuse within CSIRO's astronomy division reveal how it can damage lives and careers. Much of this was hidden from view, including from friends and colleagues.
The full moon is stunning – and this month it'll be larger than normal. Do make it a reason to embrace the darkness and have a look.
A new discovery can help determine where all the stars in the universe's galaxies actually come from.
Full moons are good reason to look up – and the one on Nov. 14 is no exception. But here’s why you likely won’t see something shockingly different from other full moons you've observed over the years.
Here's how to tell airglow from northern lights.
Astronomers have taken a forensic approach to study the stellar halo of a galaxy to reveal hidden secrets on how such galaxies were formed.
New research out this month has led to speculation that the acceleration of the expanding universe might not be real after all. So what's really going on?
To the naked eye the universe we can see on a clear night is dotted with thousands of stars. See through radio eyes, then things look very different.
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.
