We are excited to extend an invitation  for the premiere of our new movie based on the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) at the Sir Thomas Planetarium. 

The upcoming movie serves as a celebration of DESI’s scientific accomplishments to shed light on the science, instrument, and remarkable individuals driving this global initiative. Our team at UQ have been fortunate to play a significant role in the DESI project, and we would be honoured to have you join us at this premiere.

The event is open to the public but we have a couple of dozen free tickets to give away!  If you would like a free ticket please add your name to this Google Spreadsheet and we will get back to you to confirm your spot. Feel free to extend this invitation to any colleagues who might share an interest in attending, and let us know if you’d like to bring family members.  

Additional tickets can be purchased on the Planetarium site, for the special rate of $15 adult, $10 children.
