National Science Week 2019 - SciVR

17 August 2019

ANU Centre for Gravitational Physics in collaboration with ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav) and ACT National Science Week held a live stream event for public on Saturday 17th August at Menzies Library, ANU.

This event was live streamed from Melbourne by Dr Allan Duffy and Dr Rebecca Allen two well known scientists in the field of gravitational wave astrophysics. Allan and Rebecca had an interactive talk using a smart phone application SciVR (Science in Virtual Reality) that let the users explore the invisible universe on their smart phones using a pair of 3D googles. The attendees learnt about the solar system and beyond, black holes, neutron stars as well as gravitational waves and LIGO detectors.

The event was supported by a Seed Grant from ACT National Science Week Committee and was free to public ageing 10 and above.
