Presented By Nepean Science Hub and Penrith Performing And Visual Arts in conjunction with WSU Penrith Observatory An Infinite Universe: How big is Space? Western’s Penrith Observatory will host a provocative panel discussion examining the nature of existence itself. Five eminent thinkers from art, science and technology backgrounds are joined by expert science communicator and moderator Wilson Da Silva - award winning Science Communicator and co-founder of Cosmos magazine - in tackling the unknowable. The panel will feature some of Australia's most eminent and internationally recognised astronomers; Professor Orsola de Marco, Dr Brad Tucker, Professor Ray Norris, and artists Tom Compagnoni and Emma Fielden. Following the discussion Q&A, participants can take a tour of the dome with WSU Astronomer in Charge, Dr Ain De Horta, and view the night sky through a range of telescopes with the Western Sydney Amateur Astronomy Group (weather permitting).
