WA Museum Boola Bardip
September 1st, 2021

TEDxKingsPark visited space with four amazing speakers, all selected from WA’s busy and remarkable space sector.

Mysterious radio signals, planets orbiting distant stars, lasers to the moon and the early universe are just some of the subjects covered in the first in our series of evening science events held at WA Museum Boola Bardip.

Space was Guest Curated by Dr Natasha Hurley Walker, an astronomer whose brilliant TEDx talk How radio telescopes show us unseen galaxies has been seen over a million times.

All our events are carbon neutral.
