Under One Sky: Astronomy around the World | Australia

This video describes the last 100 years of multiwavelength astronomy in Australia, featuring key facilities and the people behind the science.

This video is part of the IAU100 series Under One Sky: Astronomy around the World, which provides a glimpse into the diverse worldwide astronomical community. Each video is presented through the eyes of the IAU National Outreach Coordinators, with every chapter we will learn about the history of astronomy, the country’s current research efforts in space science, and how astronomy is celebrated in this region,  with firsthand comments from astronomers and insight into the activities developed during the IAU100 celebrations throughout 2019.

Join us in celebrating an astronomical journey Under One Sky.

In 2019, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) is celebrating its 100th anniversary (IAU100). To commemorate this milestone, the IAU is organising a year-long celebration to increase awareness of a century of astronomical discoveries and technological progress as well as to support and improve the use of astronomy as a tool for education, development and diplomacy under the central theme Under One Sky.
