“How satellites revolutionised how we navigate – and tell the time”, Cillian O’Driscoll – Mon 21 June 2021, 8pm

This year we have an extra lockdown lecture for the summer solstice. Cork Astronomy Club will welcome Cork-based electronics engineer Cillian O’Driscoll who will draw on his work with ESA on the Galileo project, Europe’s own global navigation satellite system, to review how satellites have changed the way we navigate the globe.

This lecture will be held via Zoom, and is open to all. There will also be club announcements, and if you are new to our Club you will get a feel for our activities.

Start time 8 pm, and we aim to finish at 9.15. There will be an opportunity to stay and chat for a few minutes after the end of the formal meeting if you want to. The Zoom link will be sent to all Club members and also to recipients of our guest bulletins. If you are on neither list you can request a Zoom link by emailing us no later than 4 pm on the day of the meeting.

Not familiar with Zoom? If you contact us in good time, we may be able to help. Email us or (except on the day of the lecture) ring Peter on 089-2004553.
