Lockdown Lecture Series: Are we Alone? Travelling to Proxima Centauri

19th May 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Proxima Centauri is part of the nearest star system to our sun. Astronomers and Astrophyscists have been exploring ways to visit this system.

At this time, we can’t make it there in person (not COVID related).

Dr Topinka will discuss the “Breakthrough Initiative” project that aims to take the first steps and send a probe into this “local” stellar neighbourhood.

The session is free but registration is essential at the link below.

The event will take place online via Zoom link that will be sent to registered participants on the morning of the 19 May.

Please email communications@dias.ie if you have registered but do not receive the link. It will be issued via the eventbrite system
