Hi all,

1. Just a year and a day after Neil Armstrong's visit, the SECOND man on the 
moon will be making a similar visit, to the same venue! Thanks to our own 
Ulsternaut (soon to be 'astronaut') Derek Heatly, for the following details:

On Thurs. Nov. 18 Gay Byrne will interview Buzz at 8pm in the National 
Concert Hall. Tickets are 35,50,70 - Euro. Dinner with him afterwards is 35 Ero! Try 
booking on www.nch.ie or ring 01-417-0000 (003531 417 0000 from N.I.) The Armstrong 
event was superb, a unique occasion; so I'm sure Buzz will be worth hearing 

2. Science Week at Maynooth.
Come to Maynooth and see the stars, learn more about IT etc. All these and 
more are on the programme for Science Week at Maynooth from 7th to 14th 
November. Everyone will get a welcome, and all the events are free.
    Among the activities will be nightly viewing of the stars, which will 
begin at 8 pm if viewing conditions are right there. Career minded visitors will 
be able to hear what science graduates have to say about jobs in Irish 
industry. Anyone who wants to get hands-on experience of science should come along on 
Friday 12th for a series of demonstrations in biology, physics and computer 
science.  To get the latest on what's planned visit the website www.may.ie

3. Science photo competition.
From August to December, Irish Universities Promoting Science is running an 
exciting web photo competition for students under the theme, "Science is Fun". 
Primary and post-primary school students can submit their photos either 
electronically from the website  www.universityscience.ie  or by post.
    Each month, visitors to the website will be asked to vote for their 
favourite photo, as all pictures will be uploaded onto the site. A grand final of 
photos will be held in December, again picking the winners by popular vote. The 
winners will be presented with their prizes at the Young Scientist Exhibition 
in the RDS, Dublin in January 
   A good astro-photo could well have a good chance here!

Clear Skies,

Terry Moseley
