2009 International Year of Astronomy.

leave a comment »

Well it is four hundred years since Galileo invented the first telescope and to celbrate this, they (U.N) are declaring 2009 as the “International Year of Astronomy” . They are planning alot of events throughout the year, starting off with a stand at the BT Young Scientist exhibition at the RDS Dublin 7th to 10th of january. As far as I know it is admission free to the Astronomy presentation, so if you are in Dublin next Wednesday to Saturday it might be worth your while going ! All this astronomy stuff always fascinates me and reminds how insignificant man/people are in relation to the vastness of the Universe.
