Off the back of the SKA Construction Commencement Ceremony in early December, the AusSRC hosted a Key Stakeholders Event. Held in the fancy new interactive space at the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre, the event was attended by around 30 guests from local, interstate, and overseas.
In October, AusSRC held its first ever Perth Astrofest stall, with an activity showing how data will flow from the SKA-Low in the Murchison to other SRCs around the world – in the form of a marble race!
Based at ICRAR and CSIRO in Perth, the Australian SKA Regional Centre (shortened to AusSRC, “Oz-S.R.C.”) is the Australian contingent of an international network of SKA Regional Centres. These Centres will be a global computing and data delivery network that will provide the connection between the SKA telescopes and the science community.
