A brief history of Hawking’s scientific legacy
Stephen Hawking left a legacy to science; a University of Melbourne expert looks at what he left behind, from gravitational waves to imaginary time.
Riding the gravitational wave
University of Melbourne researchers are part of an international team to 'hear' Albert Einstein's gravitational waves for the third time - but what are they?
Revealed: The billion-year soundbite
