The accuracy of Australia’s defence surveillance radar is being improved through the use of a new low cost technique that uses meteor showers. Meteor showers naturally occur in the earth’s atmosphere on a continuous basis, day and night, as space rocks hit the circle of atmosphere protecting the earth’s surface.
Fresh Science is a national competition helping early-career researchers find, and then share, their stories of discovery.
The program takes up-and-coming researchers with no media experience and turns them into spokespeople for science, giving them a taste of life in the limelight, with a day of media training and a public event in their home state.
We run Fresh Science in every state where we secure operational funding.
Fresh Science 2020. We are considering how and when to run Fresh Science this year. Nominations usually open around July, close in September and training and public events are held in October/November.
