Leading Irish amateur astronomer Terry Moseley will open the Club’s new season in September by asking “ET where are you?”. The date is Mon 9th Sept 2019, and the venue is UCC. Noting that despite scientists’ best efforts no evidence of life elsewhere in the universe has so far come to light, Terry will ask what we can deduce from this. We can expect him to refer to the Fermi Paradox – the apparent mismatch between the lack of evidence, in spite of extensive search, for extra-terrestrial intelligence, and various estimates suggesting it’s highly probable extra-terrestrial civilizations should exist elsewhere in our galaxy.
All are welcome at Cork Astronomy Club’s lectures, free admittance and no obligation to join. We start at 8pm but we recommend arriving 10 minutes early if you can. Here’s how to get to the venue.
