About the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation
CSIRO, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, is Australia's national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.
CSIRO operates several world-class radio telescopes that are used by its own astronomers and other astronomers from around Australia and all over the world.
CSIRO is building the Australian SKA Pathfinder telescope in Western Australia – a next-generation telescope, and a test-bed for technology for the giant international SKA telescope.
CSIRO also supports activities in space science and Earth observation, and operates the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex (a spacecraft tracking station) on behalf of NASA.
