Trinity College in Dublin is going to have a special visit next week by the European Space Expo. They are bringing the stars to those both young and old, including interactive exhibits and workshops explaining the early stages of the universe, start formation and destruction, and especially about the Sun.

The European Space Expo is coming to Trinity College, Dublin next week, with interactive exhibits and workshops that tell the story the European Space programme.

The expo is currently under construction and will be ready for its opening day next Tuesday.

Its enclosed dome will provide an ideal hands-on environment for young people to learn about space, says solar physicist prof Peter Gallagher of Trinity.

There’ll be information and exhibits about “exploding stars, the sun and the early universe” and many other things, Prof Gallagher says.

There are soapbox talks that involve speakers standing on a crate, and delivering 10-minute talks on a variety of space-related wonders, in an interesting and engaging way.
