California Institute of Technology Key Developments

Swinburne University of Australia Extends Key Astronomy Research Partnership with California Institute for Technology

Swinburne University of Australia announced that pioneering research into supernovae, galaxy formation, Fast Radio Bursts and gravitational waves has been boosted with the renewal of Swinburne University of Technology’s research partnership with the California Institute for Technology (Caltech) for a further five years. The new agreement covers access to the ground-based optical telescopes, located at the W M Keck Observatory in Hawaii for up to 10 nights a year until 2023. It also includes collaborative research on a wide range of strategic projects, including development of advanced visualisation and machine-learning techniques, data driven discovery and joint training programs for data scientists combining teaching resources at each institution. The Keck Observatory atop Mauna Kea, has two ten metre wide telescopes. Through their unrivalled observations of stars, planets and galaxies seen billions of years back in time, they have provided some of the most spectacular views of the Universe ever obtained. More than 9,000 kilometres from the observatory, Swinburne’s Hawthorn campus houses a control room that allows Swinburne astronomers to control the Keck telescopes with a direct video link to the top of Mauna Kea.
