The journey of Australian science – Oliphant and nuclear physics

 

Join the Australian Academy of Science in our 70th anniversary year for a look at our history and into our future, at our 2024 public speaker series. 

In each instalment, we will follow the story of one scientific discipline, with an Academy Fellow and an early-career researcher as our expert guides. 

Across geology, virology, astronomy and more, we will trace history from landmark discoveries to the present cutting edge of Australian science. 

Along the way, we will get to know the Academy’s iconic earliest Fellows who shaped Australian science: from Mark Oliphant to Frank Fenner to Dorothy Hill. We will experience the challenges and curly conundrums that they grappled with, celebrate their triumphs and breakthroughs, and look ahead to today’s emerging generation of top minds following in their footsteps. 

Join us to ignite your curiosity with a series of epic science journeys.

Tickets to individual events are available for $17 (in person) or free (online).
