GPS, Robots and Earth Science (18 October 2013, 5:30pm)

The GPS has become a staple of our modern lives, but do you find yourself frustrated when your GPS device leads you down the wrong road or stranded in the middle of nowhere?

The installation of a new robotic antenna calibration facility in Canberra could mean that you may never lose your bearings again! As the only one in the Southern Hemisphere, this incredible robot will increase satellite positioning precision to less than 1mm.

To celebrate Earth Science Week (13–19 October), Dr John Dawson from Geoscience Australia will discuss this state-of-the-art facility and how it could even improve earthquake hazard mapping and track environmental variations over time.


Venue: CSIRO Discovery Centre, Clunies Ross St, Acton ACT 2601
Bookings are essential: http://inspiringtheact.org.au/event/earth-science/

5:30pm for refreshments followed by lecture from 6:30pm.

This FREE event is proudly brought to you by Geoscience Australia in partnership with Inspiring Australia.
