Space, the final frontier?


Tues 13th November 2018, 2:00pm-4:00pm, L1117, Haughton Building,  Institute of Technology Carlow            

From the earliest of times humankind has looked up at the sky in wonder. Original concepts of wanderers and celestial spheres have been replaced with a deeper understanding. Today’s space missions explore the depths of space and time and ground missions like Irelands own I-LOFAR are delving into the unexplored universe broadening the horizon of knowledge and offering us new insights. At Eureka 2018 we will for the first time bring you exquisite presentations and interactive events by leading astrophysicists from Ireland. A moment with us will expand your horizons forever.
