The group on the Space Technology and Industry Institute at Swinburne University of Technology have fought the spiralling hazard of area junk, gained treasured time at the terrific James Webb Space Telescope, and helped our college students ship microbes into area to discover making yoghurt in microgravity.
Led with the aid of using Professor Alan Duffy, the Institute is fostering schooling at each level, from vocational schooling to PhD, and serving because the engine room for innovation and monetary boom in a region projected to be worth $1 trillion globally with the aid of using 2040.
Explore a number of the Institute’s superb achievements due to the fact release in early 2021.
Space tech creating a distinction on Earth
Swinburne scientists have a front-row seat to one of the maximum critical clinical initiatives of the century, the James Webb Space Telescope. Distinguished Professor Karl Glazebrook and Associate Professor Ivo Labbe from the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing are main initiatives presented treasured time withinside the first statement cycle of the telescope, which ‘will revolutionise the take a look at of area’.

Swinburne and our companions are supporting combat the snowballing hazard of area junk, thru a venture referred to as Responsible AI in Space. Read Professor Alan Duffy in The Age on how we’re supporting maximise the advantages of AI and keep away from doubtlessly catastrophic results.
Alongside NASA, Microsoft and Geoscience Australia, we supported the EY Data Science Challenge which noticed over 10,000 entries international growing AI to assist spot bushfires from area for the Country Fire Authority.
We additionally made infinite discoveries approximately how our universe works, with the group at OzGrav gazing a truely terrific occasion of a neutron big name collide with a black hole, in addition to witnessing a cosmic romance spread and confirming that newly-created stars create a sort of area pollution.
