We manage Australia's leading facilities for radio astronomy and spacecraft tracking, we're internationally renowned for our radio astronomy research and engineering expertise, and we're helping to shape the Square Kilometre Array.
For more than 60 years we've been a world leader in radio astronomy: managing observatories, developing new technologies and revealing the structure of the Universe.
We're building a next-generation radio telescope in remote Western Australia and playing a leading role in developing the world's largest observatory.
From partnering with NASA in the exploration of space to using satellite data to monitor and manage our environment, we do a wide range of space-related activities.
A short, sharp flash of radio waves from a mysterious source up to 5.5 billion light years from Earth has been detected by CSIRO’s Parkes radio telescope in eastern Australia.
From the first steps on the Moon to the edge of the Solar System, we've been working with NASA at the forefront of space science. In July 2015, we were the prime tracking station for the closest encounter between the New Horizons spacecraft and dwarf planet Pluto.
