Mt. Stromlo Observatory - Reinventing Itself in the World of Light Thursday, Mar 10, 2016

Presentation by Brad E. Tucker, Astrophysicist/Cosmologist, and currently a Research Fellow at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Mt. Stromlo Observatory at the Australian National University.

Mount Stromlo Observatory has been carrying out astronomical observations for over 100 years and, prior to the 2003 firestorm, had grown from a small outpost of pioneering astronomers to one of the great observatories of the world.  Its history includes designing optical munitions during the Second World War, weathering two devastating bushfires and earning one Nobel Prize. Since the 2003 bushfires, Mt. Stromlo has reinvented itself from just an astronomical observatory to a centre of Astronomical Space and Technology Innovation.
