Astronomy is a science that seeks to explain everything we observe in the Universe – by studying the cosmos beyond our own planet, we can understand where we came from, where we are going and why the Universe is organised as it is. Most people are fascinated by astronomy and in ASTRO 3D, we are asking some of the biggest questions of where matter comes from and how the Universe was born, including the first stars and the first galaxies.

The members of ASTRO 3D conduct a broad range of public outreach activities including public lectures, TV and radio appearances, popular magazine and newspaper articles, as well as maintaining a high social media presence. We also support the Uluru Astronomer in Residence and Uluru Astronomy Weekend programs, in partnership with Voyages Indigenous Tourism.

ASTRO 3D will also produce a new feature-length planetarium production, to follow up from the successful Capturing the COSMOS video produced in conjunction with Museum Victoria
