This new Planetarium show highlights current research being carried out by astronomers within Australia. New and innovative telescopes, such as SkyMapper in NSW and the Murchison Wide-field Array in WA, have been designed to survey large sections of the sky. They are finding things we've never seen before and will help us to better understand our universe.

Capturing the Cosmos was produced in partnership with the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO).
