Hello and Welcome!

My name is Brian Schmidt, and I am an astronomer at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Australian National University, formerly known as Mount Stromlo and Siding Spring Observatories. I work in several areas of astronomy, most notably with exploding stars called supernovae. But I also chase after Gamma Ray Bursts, and am heading a project to build a new Telescope which will map the Southern Sky called SkyMapper!
