This event is over.

Date:Thursday October 8 2020



Join us as we speak with Dr. Niall Smith, Head of Research at the Cork Institute of Technology, Frances McCarthy, Education Officer and Astronomer at Blackrock Castle Observatory, and special guest Dr. Eamonn Culligan, BSc (Hons) in Microbiology, an MSc in Biotechnology and a PhD in Microbiology.

We’ll be chatting about the latest announcement that came after a recent publication in Nature Magazine. Phosphine gas has been detected in the atmosphere of Venus and this is thought to be a signature of life. A very exciting prospect!
