Questacon Science Café: Square Kilometre Array


WHEN: Friday 20 May

TIME: 6-9 pm (Speakers begin at 7 pm)

WHERE: Questacon-The National Science and Technology Centre


Questacon continues it's popular Science Café series to present this Discover SKA public event. 


Discover how the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will change our understanding of the Universe. Join Dr Phil Diamond and Dr Ilana Feain from CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science and Dr Charley Lineweaver from The Australian National University as they chat to 666 ABC Canberra's Adam Shirley about the SKA.


Come and find out why the SKA is the biggest thing to happen in astronomy since Galileo pointed his telescope at the sky and why Australia and New

Zealand should be chosen to host this global 'mega-science project'.


Visitors can experience the Awesome Earth and Wonderworks galleries and explore the skies with telescopes provided by The Canberra

Astronomical Society.


Light refreshments and drinks will also be available for purchase.

Please note this is an adults only event.


Admission is free; however, bookings are essential as numbers are limited.

To book, phone 02 6270 2949 or email rsvp at questacon.edu.au <mailto:rsvp at questacon.edu.au> 


Hope to see you there!
