Mapping The Universe
Thursday 25th February, 2016 - 20:00€10 – €15
Ireland’s best known astronomer and editor of Astronomy Ireland magazine, David Moore explores the universe. We start at the Sun, its family of planets, asteroids and comets, looking at where life might exist.
Looking out into the wider universe to see where the billions of Earth-like planets are and how the stars and planets came to be. Black holes, Dark Matter & Energy, even the Big Bang will all be laid bare.
This talk will especially feature the ‘Irish angle’ to the explanation of the cosmos – we invented astronomy! And even today we lead the world, nay the universe.
It’s a fun, whistle-stop tour of everything is existence.
A fascinating evening that will leave you wanting to know more.
