This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

Ireland's best known astronomer, David Moore explores the universe.  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 - 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
