2009 - Exhibition: EXPLORING THE UNIVERSE - Cork

The French Embassy in Ireland, in partnership with University College Cork and Astronomy Ireland is glad to present the exhibition: "Exploring the Universe".

JPEGFrom ancient times until now, man has observed the sky, first with the naked eye, and then with ever more powerful instruments. The information gathered was used to build an increasingly accurate and complex representation of our Universe. The classification of stars paved the way for the study of their evolution; astronomy was replaced by astrophysics and cosmology. The current instruments result from international collaborations; cooperation among researchers on key issues will lead to investigations into the formation and dynamics of the Universe. The present exhibition illustrates some of these possibilities.

Leading French scientists have helped put this travelling exhibition together. It is in English and is open to the general public.

The Exhibition "Exploring the Universe" is organised in the framework of Science Week and will run from 9th to 13th November 2009 at the Crawford Observatory, University College Cork.
