As the @ShineDome's copper roof was being replaced in mid 2021, a time capsule was placed inside the copper roof, containing messages from the Fellows of the Academy to the scientists of the future. What would you want the future to know? nitter.fdn.fr/Science_Academy/… #ShineOn

There are many incredibly creative people in the world and we're proud to say, many of them have been inspired by our Dome. Take a look at some of the adorable items that we've come across, starting with artist Annie Trevillian's tea towel! craftact.org.au/collections/…

Our former colleague Alistair Usher once created a 3D mini-me of the @ShineDome made of metal-infused PLA – a renewable bioplastic. Coolest home-made Shine Dome we've ever seen.

Our @ShineDome is the home of science in Australia. It's also an iconic, modernist building designed for us by Sir Roy Grounds, completed in 1959. Following extensive repairs required after a hailstorm, the Dome is to be officially reopened Monday 27 June. science.org.au/news-and-even…

The Academy condemns in the harshest possible terms the unprovoked and unlawful military aggression by Russia on the sovereign country of Ukraine. 🇺🇦 Full statement: science.org.au/news-and-even…

.@TimYowie still loves it. "It's one of Canberra's most iconic buildings but unlike Black Mountain tower it has a real soul and unlike Parl House it's home to some real intellectual grunt... It's quirky, fun & if you scratch its domed surface a bit, it has a surprising history."
