Dr Sabine Bellstedt is an astronomer at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, at the University of Western Australia in Perth. As an observational astronomer, she works with large-scale galaxy surveys, that use both ground- and space-based telescopes to collect data for hundreds of thousands of galaxies, to study galaxy evolution over 13 billion years of cosmic time.
Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
