New research led by an astronomer at the University of Warwick has found the first confirmed example of a double star system that has flipped its surrounding disc to a position that leaps over the orbital plane of those stars. The international team of astronomers used the Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array (ALMA) to obtain high-resolution images of the Asteroid belt-sized disc.
Arising from the success of 2017 Monash Warwick Alliance student-led conference (Un)Ethical Futures: Utopia, Dystopia and Science Fiction, and brought together by an interdisciplinary team from Monash University and the University of Warwick, a special double issue of the peer-reviewed academic journal Colloquy: Text, Theory, Critique is now available.
After completing his master’s in the Philippines, Michael Kho Lim was keen to continue his academic career. His idea was underlined at a work meeting at the Australian embassy when he spotted a ‘Study in Australia’ promotional banner.
"It’s calling me,” says Michael “I’d always wanted to do a PhD, and out of the blue I spotted the promotional banner.”
Michael, who previously worked as an executive director for the Animation Council of the Philippines, and an independent filmmaker, is passionate about the sustainability of the independent film sector in the Philippines.
