The Advisory Council of Science and Industry was located here, at 314 Albert Street, East Melbourne. In 1916, the Australian Government established the Advisory Council of Science and Industry as the first step towards a ‘national laboratory’.
Who funded the Parkes telescope?
The Carnegie Corporation had accumulated $US250 000 that it was obliged, for certain reasons, to dispose of in the British Commonwealth, and the Corporation’s trustees granted this money towards the construction of a telescope in Australia. This grant was followed by another $250 000 from the Rockefeller Foundation.
