Einstein's theory of general relativity predicts that light rays are bent when they travel past a massive object. In this talk, we will explore tests of this prediction and view some of the spectacular consequences of light bending: gravitational lenses. These gravitational lenses let us directly measure where the mass is in the Universe, and the results imply that the Universe is mostly made of an exotic substance called dark matter. Presented on Tuesday 14 November 2017.

Peter says Charity should not begin at home. We should use the resources we have to bring about the most good. The panelists Julian Burnside AO QC, Sandie deWolf AM and Jo Barraket will respond with their views to widen the discussion about philanthropy. Recorded on 10 July 2014.

Mistaken identifications by eyewitnesses can have serious consequences, as evidenced by DNA exonerations cases. Research is presented examining how different types and degrees of disguise impact the likelihood that eyewitnesses will be able to identify the perpetrator from a police lineup. DataBlitz on Memory was held on 26 April 2013.
One of the most prominent features of galaxies today is the manifestation of elegant spiral arms. We live in a beautiful grand-design spiral galaxy called the Milky Way. Our Solar System, including the Earth and the only life that we know, lies within the Orion spiral arm of our Milky Way galaxy. However, as we look back in time to the very early Universe, the frequency of spiral galaxies decreases dramatically. In fact, most galaxies in the distant past are messy and irregular in shape. Why is it so? When was the first appearance of spiral arms? How were they formed? In this talk, I will take us 11 billion years back in time through the distorted space surrounding nature's most massive structures. We will get a glimpse of earliest onset of spiral arms and directly witness the formation of a spiral galaxy that could later be home to billions of stars and planets like our earth. Presented on Friday 29 September 2017.
