Robinson Lecture Event and Dome show "Birth of Planet Earth"
6.30pm: Doors Open
7pm Talk: Delivered by Professor Caitriona Jackman, Senior Professor and Head of Planetary Magnetospheres Research Group at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS).
Talk Title: Adventures in the Outer Solar System
In this talk we will explore the gas giant planets Jupiter and Saturn. Professor Jackman will furnish the audience with plenty of fun facts about the amazing worlds of dynamic auroral displays, diverse moons, and mysterious atmospheres. She will focus on some of the famous spacecraft including Cassini which spent 13 years exploring the Saturn system, and NASA's Juno which is currently in orbit around Jupiter.
8pm Dome Show: Birth of Planet Earth
Birth of Planet Earth is a planetarium full-dome show that tells the twisted tale of our planet's origins.
Scientists now believe that our galaxy is filled with solar systems, including up to a billion planets roughly the size of our own.
The film employs advanced, data-driven, cinematic-quality visualizations to explore some of the greatest questions in science today: How did Earth become a living planet in the wake of our solar system's violent birth? What does its history tell us about our chances of finding other worlds that are truly Earth-like?
