Tour the Universe – VR style!

Thursday, 16 August 2018.

Help us Celebrate Science week and take a tour of the invisible Universe!

Join Professor Alan Duffy and Doctor Rebecca Allen to discover how Australian scientists are leading the way in probing the Universe through ripples in the fabric of space-time and providing unique views of the microscopic world.

A SciVR headset will be supplied on the night to take you out of our world and in to one filled with colliding black holes and microscopic wonders!

And afterwards, you can see the night sky in real time through a computerised telescope from the Lake Boga Observatory, weather depending.

Don’t miss the unique chance to explore the Universe using ground-breaking technology and make new discoveries through Q&A with the speakers.

Please note: Participants will need their own Smartphone to use with the VR head set and, prior to the tour starting, have downloaded the free SciVR app.
