GLEAM: A Panoramic View of the Universe in Colour

By • April 27th, 2017

In searching for cosmic events and the evolution of our solar system, radio astronomers have traditionally surveyed only segments of the sky. Recently, however, the GaLactic and Extragalactic All-sky Murchison Widefield Array survey (GLEAM) project has collected and processed enough data to survey the entire Southern sky: in “radio colour.” GLEAM’S key researcher is Drmore…

Simulating the Epoch of Reionisation

By • July 29th, 2015

A team of researchers led by Dr Alan Duffy from Swinburne University of Technology’s Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing is using the petascale power of the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre to uncover the secrets behind the birth of the Universe’s first galaxies. The project is simulating the little-understood formation of these galaxies at an unrivalled levelmore…

GPU Accelerated Gravitational Wave Signal Processing

By • June 22nd, 2015

We propose to apply Zeus GPU facilities to continue our on-going development of the GPU-accelerated gravitational wave (GW) search pipeline. This pipeline will be used for one of the prioritised searches for the first science run of the advanced GW detectors in the US and in Europe starting September 2015. We are now in themore…

The Genetics of the Magellanic Clouds

By • June 22nd, 2015

This project will study the interaction history of the Magellanic Clouds and the Milky Way, focusing on the identification of orbital models that lead to the formation of the gaseous structures observed in the Magellanic System, named the extensive gaseous Magellanic Stream and the Leading Arm. We will derive a sample of orbital models formore…
