October Southern Sky Livestream with Prof Alan Duffy

22 October 2021, 8–9pm Sydney Observatory Book Tickets

Discover the nature of Dark Matter and Blackholes with Professor Alan Duffy.

Broadcasting live from Sydney Observatory, see the stellar highlights of the October Southern Sky from our telescopes.

Decades of research have led astronomers to a staggering conclusion, that there exists a new, invisible type of mass known as dark matter that outweighs everything we can see five times over. But that’s not the only invisible side to our universe, hungry black holes grow in size as they feed on stars and gas unfortunate enough to pass too closely. Join Professor Duffy to tour the universe, and see just how much of the invisible universe we can see.

Professor Alan Duffy is Director of Swinburne’s Space Technology and Industry Institute, a Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Dark Matter Particle Physics, and an astrophysicist who creates universes on supercomputers to understand how galaxies form and to probe the nature of dark matter. An avid science communicator, he shares his work to a wide audience across TV, radio and public events, as the Lead Scientist of the Royal Institution of Australia.
