Australian astronomers are part of a prize-winning team that was the first to pinpoint the location of a fast radio burst. But there is much we still don't know about these mysterious bursts.
Based on what we currently know about the density of giant radio galaxies in the sky, the probability of finding two of them in this region is extremely small.
One way forward would be to abandon the traditional approach of using single-dish telescopes for SETI.
Visitors are discouraged from the remote desert location where powerful telescopes are listening to the universe.
A collaboration between Australian and German scientists gives an unrivalled view of the structure of the Universe.
We observed a powerful flare and a huge burst of radio waves from our nearest stellar neighbour, Proxima Centauri, indicating violent space weather around the star.
When astronomers started using the new ASKAP radio telescope, they discovered mysterious circular blobs of unknown size and distance in the sky.
Radio telescopes are incredibly sensitive to phone network interference.
The discovery of phosphine in the acidic clouds of Venus can't be explained by any known chemical or geological processes.
An upgrade for the Australia Telescope Compact Array will enable major new discoveries about the universe
When the USSR launched the world's first satellite, Sputnik 1 didn't do much other than regularly "beep" over the radio. Yet, this simple sound is associated with the beginnings of space exploration.
Radio flare may be the result of a giant star orbiting some unusual object – a combination we have never seen before.
Listen up, conspiracy theorists – it is virtually impossible that there could be alien visitors on Earth.
Astronomers think they've identified which galaxy was the source of a blast radio energy, over in a fraction of a second. And it's much closer to us than the others detected, so far.
Merging supermassive black holes would emit gravitational waves, allowing scientists to detect them.
Astronomers found something not predicted by current theory when they took a closer look at the emissions from a neutron star with a very strong magnetic field.
By sharing a location with the SKA, HIRAX will be able to conduct science in “radio-clear” skies across its wide frequency range.
Astronomy is accessible to anyone with a view of the sky.
Astronomers are getting ready to say good bye to the radio emission from a neutron star merger – one of the most energetic events in the universe – that was detected last year.
Pulsars are rapidly rotating neutron stars and some of them are know to have a "glitch", and astronomers have captured one as it hapened.
