Do you know how the universe was born? Did you know that people are made of almost 50 per cent comet juice? Did you know that the zinc we need to live was created by an exploding star? The Astronomy Ireland evening classes will answer these questions and much more.
Astronomy Ireland is thrilled to announce that it is running Astronomy Evening Classes in Athlone Institute of Technology starting on Thursday October 15.
The classes have been designed by the Astronomy Ireland team for the general public and have received great reviews to date. The exciting and hugely anticipated classes are suitable for people of all ages and all abilities. Learn about the pioneers of astronomy and their turbulent history, the mysterious world of dark energy, dark matter and black holes, how our solar system was formed, how long before the sun will die and much, much more.
The price of the classes also includes membership to Astronomy Ireland and a subscription to their full-colour magazine Astronomy & Space. This monthly magazine gives all the latest national and international news, and is packed full of features, photos and a diary of spectacular celestial events that everyone can see for the coming month.
