SETI Australia Center
SETI is the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. It's an experiment carried out internationally by a number of independent groups. Southern SERENDIP, SETI Australia's research project, is among the top three experiments in the world.

Project Phoenix"
Project Phoenix is the world's most sensitive and comprehensive search for extraterrestrial intelligence. It is an effort to detect extraterrestrial civilizations by listening for radio signals that are either being deliberately beamed our way, or are inadvertently transmitted from another planet. Phoenix is the successor to the ambitious NASA SETI program that was cancelled by a budget-conscious Congress in 1993. Phoenix began observations in February, 1995 using the Parkes 210 foot radio telescope in New South Wales, Australia. This is the largest radio telescope in the Southern Hemisphere.

Southern Sky Watch
Looking up at the stars is still a rewarding pursuit, despite the increasing light pollution in our major cities. The southern sky is full of interesting objects, many of which go unseen in the northen hemisphere. All you need for a good nights viewing is yourself, a good idea of where south and east are, and your hands. Optional extras are a small pair of binoculars, a torch with red cellophane taped over the business end and a note book. Further tips for backyard astronomy may be found here, and a general article on amateur astronomy from New Scientist is here.
