Places remaining: ∞
Cost: €€5.00 (Plus booking fee)
Ireland’s best known astronomer, David Moore will explore The Universe in a highly illustrated exciting talk. We start at the Sun, its family of planets, asteroids and comets, looking at where life might exist in our Solar system. He then looks 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, Dark Energy, and the Big Bang will all be laid bare.
David is also the Editor of Astronomy Ireland magazine – the magazine of the world’s most popular astronomy society which he founded in 1990.
This talk will especially feature the ‘Irish angle’ to the explanation of the cosmos – the Irish invented astronomy! And even today we lead the world, nay the universe with great astronomy researchers and the world’s most popular astronomy club – Astronomy Ireland.
It’s a fun, whistle-stop tour of everything in existence. A fascinating talk that will leave you wanting to know more.
