‘Celtic Cosmos’ is an informal group of space and science fiction enthusiasts, aiming to generate events in both fields, on both sides of the Irish Sea. Among the organisation’s purposes are to promote scientific knowledge and education, particularly in regard to space science, the Earth sciences, and astronomy, including ancient and historic astronomy, among beginners of all backgrounds and ages, in Ireland and Scotland, and to encourage interest and practical activities in those subject areas at all levels of involvement.
The event being held by Celtic Cosmos in August of this year is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Many thanks to those who had offered help or support.
Our first programme will be ‘space and science fiction’ exhibition/events/talks for the month of August 2020 at the Tsukure Hub, 51 High Street, Ayr, KA7 1LU.
Events during the month will include a programme of talks, and the launch of Duncan’s latest book, “The Other Side of the Interface”, the second collection of his astronomy and space related stories to be published by Other Side Books.
The exhibition is planned to include historic charts of the stars, planets and space exploration, as well as astronomical photographs by local observers. Organisations to be represented include the Open University, the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory and local astronomical societies. It’s hoped to include displays of art and models by local artists, as well at least one big name from further afield. There will be a science fiction bookshop featuring books by Duncan Lunan and other Scottish SF authors.
More details of the artists, photographers and writers taking part will be released as they are confirmed.
Financial support, proposals for events and offers of exhibits will all be warmly welcomed.
