Journey to the SKA telescope and beyond the Milky Way
PressReleasePoint, Other, 14/12/2021
The International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, a joint venture between The University of Western Australia and Curtin University, has been instrumental in the creation of new virtual reality documentary Beyond the Milky Way. Guided by scientists, experts and the traditional owners of the region descendants of some of the world’s first astronomers the documentary allows viewers to step on to the future West Australian site of the Square Kilometre Array telescope and shows the sky in 360. […] White Spark Pictures liked the idea, so Mr Wheeler pitched it to colleagues in the Federal Government and then CSIRO to gain support and funding.
