Darkness Visible Down Under
Allan Scott Auditorium, University of South Australia, City West Campus, Adelaide, Australia
Presented by Associate Professor Alan Duffy Decades of research have led astronomers to a staggering conclusion - that there exists a new, invisible type of mass that outweighs everything we can see five times over. I will explain how we know so much about the properties of a particle we have yet to discover, and how Australia is playing a leading role in uncovering the nature of this mysterious dark matter with SABRE, the world’s first dark matter detector in the Southern Hemisphere in the Stawell gold mine.
Night Sky Observing
Join UniSA and the City of Salisbury for a night among the stars! Have you ever looked up at the stars and wondered how to identify different constellations or how their story came to exist? Perhaps a thought you haven’t had is does everybody see their history in the same way? Australia has been occupied by humans for at least 50,000 years and over this time Aboriginal Australians have accumulated a detailed knowledge of the heavens above. In this event, Paul Curnow will give an introductory talk into Australian Aboriginal cultures and how their view of the night sky differs from the contemporary western view. Sponsored by the City of Salisbury.
International Astronaut and Human Spaceflight Panel
Allan Scott Auditorium, University of South Australia, City West Campus, Adelaide, Australia Description: The International Astronaut and Human Spaceflight Panel is an annual highlight of each ISU session. SH-SSP participants and the public will have the opportunity to interact with astronauts who represent over 30 years of international spaceflight experience. Instructors:

Moon Village - ARCHES workshop on architecture for extreme environments
SHSSP19 - Interstellar Program Alpha Centauri
Guest Speaker: Dr Simon Peter "Pete" Worden Can we reach the stars?
No extraterrestrials have yet visited us – but neither have we stepped out onto the galactic stage. Are we destined to belong to Earth for as long as we survive? Or can we reach the stars? Breakthrough Starshot is a $100 million research and engineering program aiming to lay the foundations for a flyby mission to Alpha Centauri, our nearest star system, within a generation. This is one of several privately-funded global initiatives to answer the fundamental science questions surrounding the origin, extent and nature of life in the universe. The Breakthrough Initiatives are managed by the Breakthrough Prize Foundation.

SHSSP19 - Hazards of Human Space Exploration
Guest Speaker: Dr Gordon Cable
Plans for the exploration of deep space over the coming decades will see humans travel deeper into space and for longer periods than at any time in human history. A permanent presence in cis-lunar orbit, exploration of the lunar surface, and missions to the Mars system are all being planned. This new era of space exploration will expose humans to hazards not experienced since the Apollo program of the 1960s and 70s, but magnified by greater distance and much longer exposures. This presentation will use the paradigm of NASA’s Human Research Program (HRP) which prioritizes 5 hazards of human spaceflight to explore the ways that the deep space environment can affect human physiology and health, and the challenges that must be overcome for exploration missions to succeed.
SH-SSP19 - Astronaut & Human Spaceflight Panel
Guest Speaker: Mr Paolo Nespoli
The International Astronaut Event is a long-standing highlight in ISU sessions. Members of the general-public will have an opportunity to ask a broad range of questions of our invited astronaut and obtain their autograph. We are delighted to announce that Mr Paolo Nespoli will deliver a presentation on spaceflight and will provide an insight and opinion, with a particular emphasis on the human factors involved in spaceflight as humans gain more experience in long-duration missions in order to prepare for inter-planetary travel. Paolo visited the International Space Station in 2007 as a member of the STS-120 crew and returned for six months from December 2010 to May 2011 with Expedition 26/27. Paolo’s third flight to the Space Station was from July to December 2017 as part of a barter agreement between NASA and Italy’s ASI space agency.
