The Australian Academy of Science champions, celebrates and supports excellence in Australian science, promotes international scientific engagement, builds public awareness and understanding of science and provides independent, authoritative and influential scientific advice.
In its 63rd year, Science at the Shine Dome will feature more than 40 extraordinary scientists from around Australia—and special international guests—in a fast-paced smorgasbord of new knowledge from across the scientific spectrum.
Explore fascinating discoveries in the hunt for extraterrestrial life and habitable planets, what planets like Jupiter are really made of, how time works in space, the exploration of the outer reaches of our planet and how we are using lasers to clean up space debris.
Dr Greene will introduce the Space Environment Research Centre (SERC). SERC's mission involves developing and commercialising technologies to reduce the threat to space-based infrastructure from space debris.
Professor Cairns's primary interests are in the theory, simulation, and observation of plasma waves, radio emissions, shocks, and associated space weather produced in the solar atmosphere, inner solar wind, planetary magnetospheres, the distant heliosphere, and the local interstellar medium.
