Paul Richards (Australia)

In August 2017 observatories around the world detected gravitational waves from two colliding neutron stars, bringing scientists one step closer to solving the mystery of the creation of the Universe.


Founded in 2000, SCINEMA is the largest science film festival in the southern hemisphere celebrating the power of moving image to explain the wonders of science.

It combines SCINEMA International Science Film Festival and SCINEMA Community Program.

The Festival premieres across Australia in June each year and showcases the best science film from around the world.

SCINEMA Community Program takes place in Australia during National Science Week in August.
