A Winter Solstice

Solstice:  standing still


The bulletin is taking an end-of-year break . . . but in the interim, I’d love to hear from you about the kind of service you would like to see (you can use the comment form below).

When Science@Culture started over a decade ago, there were few popular science events of any kind in Ireland.  Happily, there is now a busy schedule.

In a way, that means there’s even more need for a bulletin than ever, to bring all the news together in one space. And the hundreds of you who subscribe to the bulletin presumably agree.
