  • The NeCTAR funded Theoretical Astrophysical Observatory (TAO) empowers astronomers to build complex customised views of the Universe, all from the comfort of their own computer. Swinburne Associate Professor Darren Croton, said: “TAO makes it easy and efficient for any astronomer to create these virtual universes. It's the culmination of years of effort that is now at the fingertips of scientists around the world... using TAO it might take a few minutes to create a mock catalogue of galaxies, versus months or even years of development previously.”

  • The nearly 100 particle physicists at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics at the Terascale (CoEPP) in Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide, are working with collaborators around the globe to understand what the universe is made of and how it started. CoEPP scientists face the challenge of keeping up with the growing demands for storage and high throughput computing. The NeCTAR Research Cloud together with RDSI funded storage and the new AARNet 4 backbone network are helping to provide the solution.
