From today, researchers and businesses preparing to head to the Moon can test their technologies in a new facility established by Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO.
Most of exoplanets discovered so far have been discovered by applying the transit technique. This technique is based on a tiny eclipse caused when a planet travels in front of its star. The decrease in luminosity detected makes it possible to infer the presence of a planet and to guess its diameter, after the observations have been verified from time to time.
Rheinmetall, the largest supplier of military vehicles to the Australian Defence Force has today announced the build and export contract of a Lynx Infantry Fighting Vehicle Test Chassis to the United States of America from its factory in Redbank Queensland.
