Tracking the Moon is Easy : QUT Academic
It's an exciting breakthrough for any budding astronomer. Stephen Hughes, member of QUT's School of Physical and Chemical Sciences, said that moon tracking is possible even for the novice astronomer. All that is needed is a digital camera, a computer and a bit of working knowledge.
"DIY (Do it yourself) astronomy is easy, said Hughes.
"From night to night the moon moves gainst the unchanging backdrop of the stars.
"If we can measure how much the moon moves in a 24 hour period we can work out how long it takes the moon to complete one orbit of the earth, which is the length of the lunar month".
Dr Hughes labelled this breakthrough as a step closer to making science more accessible to the average person.
"This experiment shows how scientists can use modern technology to look at an age old problem.
"I want to encourage young people to get excited about science and think about exploring the extensive career choices that science offers", he said.
QUT MOU with leading Indian Technology Institutions
The Queensland University of Technology has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IITM) and the Indian Society for Electronic Transactions and Security (SETS). This agreement paves the way for joint collaboration in the important areas of information security and intelligence analysis.
"The importance of information security in today's world cannot be underestimated, QUT Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Coaldrake said.
"Not only do we live in a world where all aspects of our lives are increasingly dependent on information and communication technologies, but we also live in a post 9/11 world where this dependence is under constant threat.
"Additionally, viruses, identity theft and other problems all contribute to make the Internet a dangerous place", said Professor Coaldrake.
The agreement has been descibed as a move that will benefit all concerned stakeholders in the Information Technology sector.
"This agreement represents a very strategic and timely response to the electronic security needs of today, said Professor Coaldrake.
"QUT is proud to be part of this partnership, which both addresses a problem of international and topical importance, and is helping to further build strategic links between Australia and India".
International Travel Visits
The countries and regions selected for visits by QUT representatives include:
- The Gulf States

Delegation in India
A special delegation led by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Peter Coaldrake, recently visited India to explore areas for cooperation and ways to build further strategic links between the Indian and Australian education sectors and the also the two countries. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed with a leading Indian technology institution, the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras (IITM). This agreement paves the way for joint cooperation in the fields of information security and intelligence analysis.

Innovations & Breakthroughs - Personal solar power gives true wireless capability
Nano scientists from Queensland University of Technology are developing cheap, portable, personal solar cells that will be able to recharge laptops and mobile phones.
The flexible, 100 nm (nanometres - a nanometre is one billionth of a metre) thick polymer sheet devices will be able to be rolled up and taken anywhere to free users-on-the-move from having to depend on fossil fuel powered sockets to keep their communications devices charged.
Professor Nunzio Motta of QUT's School of Engineering Systems and Dr Eric Waclawik from the School of Physical and Chemical Sciences are developing the new renewable energy source using nanotechnology.
Weighing all of 10 micrograms per cm2, the new product is a cheap composite material made from carbon nanotubes, a 10th of the size of a human hair, and conductive polymer.
The polymer tiles could be easily linked together in a patchwork to increase the size and generate more power according to individual needs.
"QUT is the only university to be looking to develop the use of carbon nanotubes in this way," Prof Motta said.
"This solar cell could generate enough energy to recharge the batteries of low power devices such as laptops and mobiles."
Dr Waclawik said the polymer could be a viable alternative to silicon solar cells which are expensive, heavy and delicate.
"Although silicon solar cells have gained considerable market share and commercial success, high production costs still limit their commercial viability," he said.
"This is why we are exploring the development of low cost alternative photovoltaic in the Applied Nanotechnology group under a QUT Strategic Collaborative Grant."
