Cosmic 75 – 75 Years of the School of Cosmic Physics at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies
October 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
From the first ever Irish experiment in space, to landmark insights on volcanoes, the School of Cosmic Physics at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) will continue to play a leading role in strengthening our understanding of the world and cosmos around us for many years to come.
Founded in 1947, the DIAS School of Cosmic Physics uses the ideas and methods of physics to understand the world around us, from the interior of the Earth to the edges of the universe. The School is organised in two broad sections: Geophysics – focused on the interior and surface of the Earth; and Astronomy and Astrophysics – focused outwards to our solar system and beyond.
Join Professor Luke Drury as he takes us back to the foundation of the School and through some of the many discoveries over the past 75 years.
