Astrophysicists Jo Dunkley helps us look to the stars in this riveting All About Women 2020 talk.

In a fascinating chat from this year's All About Women 2020 festival, super-smart astrophysicist Jo Dunkley makes getting your head around the vastness of the universe easy and fun to grasp. 

Dunkley is in conversation with NITV's science and technology editor and Wiradjuri woman Rae Johnston, a multi-award-winning STEM journalist herself, and the two cover everything from our planet's orbit of the sun to superclusters far beyond. They also shout out the unsung female heroes who paved the way for Dunkley to shine, all in spite of the structural boundaries they faced. 

If you've ever wanted to know more about our place in the grand scheme of things, Dunkley and Johnston are here to open your eyes wide. 

Streaming on From Our House to Yours on Thursday, April 23 at 8pm AEST, the whip-smart conversation will be available to view at any time afterwards.
