A former senator displays a rather unique understanding of the Belfast Agreement Leo Varadkar is saying he shares the Taoiseach’s vision of a united Ireland at some point in the future.

Speaking of probes albeit interplanetary this time. Juno, which became the first human made spacecraft to ever come so close to Jupiter, a mere 4,000 kms above the planet, should start sending back fascinating photographs across the next few days.A

Mentioned some of the events on during this during the last week, but the overall programme seems very interesting indeed. It’s held from 23 September to 8 October and there’s something for everyone, or so it would seem!A

So, astronomers have discovered a planet orbiting the closest star to the Sun. Proxima Centauri b is thought to be a little larger than the Earth, to orbit one hell of a lot closer to its star than the Earth does to the Sun and yet due to the nature of that star to receive […]A

The week where a planet is discovered in that remarkably complex system is a good one to look at it a bit more closely. Here?s wiki?s overview on it. When I say complex I mean it. There?s three stars in the state, A, B and Proxima Centauri where the planet has been discovered. Isn?t it […]A
