Stars viewed from a place called Dome A in Antarctica can finally be seen without their twinkle – which means in much greater detail.
A team led by UNSW scientists have significantly increased the coherence time of a spin-orbit qubit in silicon, allowing them to preserve quantum information for longer. These results open up a new pathway to scale silicon quantum computers.
An astrophysicist shares tips on how to make the most of the Winter Solstice this weekend – and you don’t even need equipment to start exploring the sky.
An unusual galaxy is set to prompt a rethink on how structures in the Universe form.
The inner workings of young stars have been identified by an international team of researchers including a UNSW Sydney physicist.
Big galaxies get bigger by merging with smaller ones, modelling has shown.
An international team of researchers has revealed the mechanisms behind fish schooling – and what they found differs from what scientists had previously thought.
At only 1 per cent the age of the Sun, the DS Tuc binary system shows us how a planet might naturally develop before its orbit is disturbed by external forces.
Astronomers have spotted something they weren't expecting – a star that has been travelling at 6 million kilometres an hour for 5 million years.
The temperature can get below minus 93 degrees on an Antarctic ridge near Dome A, where UNSW scientists operate an astronomical observatory, writes Michael Ashley.
