Conflict to Cosmos – One of the major outcomes of communication during conflict has been the development of radio communications, ultimately leading to the development of radio astronomy. This new sub-field of astronomy, which Australia has and still excels, has “opened our eyes” to the unseen Universe. From super massive black holes to the faint glow from the formation of the Universe!
