NewsFeed: 24 – 28 January

A busy media week for our University of Southern Queensland experts.

Stories aplenty across print, broadcast and radio!


An out-of-this-world question to start the week.

  • PhD candidate Nataliea Lowson gave her take on whether there is another Earth out there (and a stellar answer, no less). So good it was heard on ABC Radio stations across the country.

One, two, three, four, five… six.

  • Was the number of brothers education graduate Amy Gale grew up with. Find out how they inspired her to become a teacher via The Chronicle.


Planning for the future of Nepal’s rhinos.

  • PhD student Ganesh Pant is delving into the potential impact of one-horned rhinoceros numbers and effects of climate change on the endangered species. Rhinot read more about how he’s leading the charge via MSN News. Nothing like reaching an international audience on a Tuesday!

Kicking goals.

  • We’ve teamed up with Australian Futsal to support athletes and students achieving their sporting and academic goals. A game changer if we’ve ever seen one. More via The Chronicle and UniSQ News.


Your mid-week space fix. And it’s a good one.

  • Three words. Dr Graziella Caprarelli. There’s (far) too much to cover in one dot point – so you’ll just have to head to our Twitter to find out what she’s been up to. Remarkable, really.

“Something I’ve never had before.”

  • Student Thuch Angui was featured in The Courier-Mail talking about his life in South Sudan and quest to become an Australian Citizen.


Our research is speeding up.

  • We’ll keep this one short. Delta Velos(ta), baby. All the (more technical) information via Australian Manufacturing.

An A+ interview.

  • Curriculum and Pedagogy Lecturer Tania Leach was heard on Triple M Darling Downs talking the start of the school year, #Omicron and keeping control.


Looking to the skies to end the week.

  • Space Australia went on an exoplanet hunt, reporting on our researchers receiving a grant to discover and observe small distant exoplanets using specialised cameras added to the MINERVA-Australis telescope
  • ABC News published an online article on new evidence suggesting water exists on Mars.
  • And climate scientist Dr Christa Pudmenzky provided expert comment for Quest News articles on car usage.

Until next week, thank you for joining us.
