NewsFeed: 15 – 19 November

Us here. With your weekly media highlights.

Monday

Houston, we have a (space junk) problem.

  • A chunk of Chinese satellite almost hit the International Space Station. They dodged it… but the space junk problem is getting worse, wrote Professor Brad Carter and Mark Rigby for an article in The Conversation. Nothing like a giant space manoeuvre to start the week.

Tuesday

You should really note this radio interview.

  • One of Australia’s best-known singer-songwriters took his first musical steps here, performing many of his assessments through song. Kev Carmody spoke (not sang, unfortunately) to ABC News about his latest movements.

Wednesday

Off to a flying art.

  • Work produced by our Visual Arts students is currently being showcased at the annual GraduArt exhibition. Whether it be using ceramic and glass to symbolise the transcendence of hope or pieces created to evoke nostalgia for places visited, the display really is a testament to our talented students and their tenacity.

Thursday

Finding innovative solutions to work problems.

  • Three of our researchers have been awarded Advance Queensland fellowships – reigning in a new era of research and supporting industry to have a meaningful impact. Wondering who they are? As always, USQ News has got you covered.

Friday

Gold standard.

  • Through what has been a tumultuous year for high school students, Ipswich teenagers have excelled and received University of Southern Queensland Excellence Awards. Thanks for giving us all the feels, The Courier-Mail.

Celebrating the fact that we’re so #AgVenturous.

  • Did you know that we offer Queensland’s first dedicated degree in Agricultural Technology and Management? Did you know there’s research collaborations constantly underway at our Centre for Agricultural Engineering, Institute for Life Sciences and the Environment, and Southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales Drought Resilience Hub? Oh, and did you know that we build up the communities supporting the agriculture industry via our Institute for Resilient Regions? You can literally chose your own #AgVenture here. Okay, that’s all. But read more.
