CTA Public Evening Event @ Dias Dunsink Observatory on THURSDAY 15th November 2018 at 19:30hrs
==============================================================================.
Join us on Thurs Evening 15th November 2018 at 19:30hrs in DIAS Dunsink Observatory to learn more about the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), the exciting and challenging next-generation Astronomical Facility, which is currently at the design and prototype phase.

It will be a Major Global Observatory for very High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy over the next decade and beyond.

The scientific potential of CTA is extremely broad: from understanding the role of Relativistic Cosmic Particles to the search for Dark Matter.

Prof. John Quinn (UCD) and Dr. Maria Chernyakova (DIAS) will give an overview of the status of the field of ground-bassed gamma-ray astronomy including a brief history of the role that Ireland played in its development.

They will describe how the CTA telescopes work and discuss the most exiting discoveries that CTA should be able to bring to us. The CTA Telescopes will no doubt create more questions for the scientific community to try and answer into the future.

Look forward to seeing you there.
