She explores the research laboratories where the crew conduct scientific experiments in physics, biology, and meteorology. An Inside Tour of the International Space Station [video length 28:57 minutes]
  • Ever wondered what it would be like to live in space? NASA astronauts Karen Nyberg and Suni Williams show how they wash their hair, clean their teeth and go to the toilet while living in the weightlessness of the International Space Station. View the videos: How to Wash Your Hair in Space [video length 2:57 minutes] and How astronauts brush their teeth & poop in space [video length 4:06 minutes]

Resources for Secondary school students

Next generation telescopes
  • Watch a time-lapse showcasing CSIRO's new telescope, the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP), standing tall in Western Australia. ASKAP has been designed to be able to survey the whole sky extremely quickly, making it possible to undertake astronomy projects that could never have been done before. ASKAP telescope time-lapse [video length 3:37 minutes]
  • CSIRO's next generation telescope, the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP), will be one of the most powerful survey radio astronomy instruments on the planet, thanks to an innovative new receiver system that has been developed specifically for ASKAP. These receivers, known as phased array feeds (PAFs), are a breakthrough in compact economical design and will capture radio images with unprecedented sensitivity over a large area of sky. ASKAP: Phased array feeds for radio astronomy [video length 2:33 minutes]
  • Astronomer David Malin is interviewed about Astronomy in Australia. David Malin: Astronomy in Australia  [video length 1.30 minutes ]
