Join us at Dunsink Observatory for a night-long celebration of space and history — from Ireland’s rich and colourful history of exploring the universe, to our role in making future discoveries beyond our atmosphere. Throughout the night we’ll have talks, conversation, demonstrations and, weather permitting, some stargazing — all in the historic surroundings of Dunsink Observatory. Meet the scientists at the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies (DIAS) who are expanding our understanding of the universe, the Dunsink team who care for the history and future of the observatory, and the community of astronomers and space fans who help make Dunsink one of the most important sites for space exploration in Ireland. This event will include a presentation on the historic Grubb telescope housed in our South Dome.
