Voyager 2 is approximately 18 billion kilometres from Earth. Voyager mission scientists have been closely monitoring the spacecraft for signs that it has exited the 'heliosphere', a protective bubble created by our Sun as we move through our galaxy.


CSIRO, Australia’s pre-eminent national science organization, has today announced a partnership with San Francisco Bay Area-based ocean technology start-up Saildrone to radically improve measurement and monitoring in hard-to-access oceans starting in the Southern Hemisphere.

UC Davis Partnership

The five-year partnership marks the first major collaboration agreement with an American university for CSIRO.

Swinburne University partnership

CSIRO and Swinburne University of Technology have launched a new partnership in Silicon Valley as part of a strategic move to increase Australia-US research, innovation and commercialisation.

CSIRO Chairman David Thodey flew into San Francisco in November to support the growth of U.S. operations and to meet with CSIRO partners.

Lab 22

Anatomics, an Australian medical device company whose US operations are now co-located at CSIRO's new Silicon Valley office, designed the sternal and rib cage prosthesis and printed it at CSIRO’s Lab 22 facility in Melbourne.
