Meet Lucas Storer, a Master’s research student at ICRAR. His project is focusing on discovering low surface brightness structure (faint light in the Universe).


To do this, he is using a small, specially designed telescope called Starfox. This is an optical telescope that’s used for deep sky imaging, to detect diffuse intra-halo light and faint galaxies.


We can’t wait to see what Lucas and Starfox discover!
