Astronomy: Discovering the Universe

Dr. John Morgan, Curtin University

Explore the evolution of the universe, the future of astronomy & the role technology plays in new discoveries.

What was the Big Bang? How do black holes work? Could there be life elsewhere in the Universe? In this course we’ll address those topics, as well as gaining some insight into how great scientific discoveries were made, and what's involved in scientific research. We'll also look at the vital role that new technology plays in scientific discoveries. We'll talk to scientists about their role in the development of largest telescope in the history of astronomy: the Square Kilometre array.
