UNSW Canberra Space’s M2 CubeSat satellites successfully launched with Rocket Lab’s ‘They Go Up So Fast’ mission from New Zealand earlier today, representing a significant step forward in Australia’s sovereign space capabilities.
The human central nervous systems provide us with the first hint that we’re not well. Now, UNSW Canberra researchers are one step closer to developing aircraft that can ‘feel’ with similar sensory perception.
Plastic is an extraordinary product. Invented in the latter years of the 19th century, plastic, originally made from a combination of natural polymers, was designed to replace the ivory in billiard balls.
An international study, led by researchers from UNSW Canberra, has discovered the secret of bumblebees’ self-aware dexterous flight, that could have applications for the next generation of drones and autonomous vehicles.
The satellite platform Lena Meyer holds in her hands is the culmination of two years’ work. Combining materials science and advanced manufacturing, this technology demonstration will inform future small satellite design and cubesat missions.
Space. Rockets Satellites. Planetary exploration. As an aerospace engineer, I can work in all these areas. It's as exciting as it sounds and is limitless in how it continues to shape our collective future.
Some missions, such as search operations, have always included an element of risk. Now, UNSW Canberra researchers are working on artificial intelligence that could save lives by taking humans out of the equation.
