Take a tour of the invisible Universe. We will provide everyone with a SciVR headset to take them out of this world to the world of colliding black holes and microscopic wonders.

Join Professor Alan Duffy and Dr Rebecca Allen to discover how Australian scientists are leading the way in probing the Universe through ripples in the fabric of space-time and providing unique views of the microscopic world. Explore this Universe through the use of ground-breaking Virtual Reality technology and make new discoveries through Q&A with the speakers.

Prior to the Virtual Reality tour please download the free SciVR app for your smartphone.

This program has been made possible with the generous support of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav), Swinburne University of Technology, State Library Victoria and ARC Centre of Excellence for Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies (FLEET) and is supported by the Australian Government as part of National Science Week.

Please arrive at 6:30pm to get your VR headset set up for a 7pm start.
