We can use light from distant quasars to determine the nature of objects lying between us and the quasars, and also how material in the space between galaxies has changed over time.More details
Twenty-five CAASTRO astronomers from eight institutions have contributed to a stunning breakthrough, announced today, that has brought gravitational-wave astronomy and conventional astronomy together.More details
A special kind of radio-wave receiver called a phased-array feed can make possible new kinds of research with large single-dish radio telescopes, tests led by CAASTRO researchers have shown.
For the first time astronomers have measured how a galaxy’s spin affects its shape.More details
Heavyweight galaxies living in a dense crowd of galaxies tend to spin more slowly than their lighter neighbours, and an Australian-led team has found out why.More details
