From Kilmainham to outer space

(Irish Times photo). In the grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, a life-size mock up of the new James Webb Space Telescope.

From their website, they say it launches in 2013 and has four themes: “The End of the Dark Ages: First Light and Reionization, The Assembly of Galaxies, The Birth of Stars and Protoplanetary Systems, and Planetary Systems and the Origins of Life.” Wow! That’s a must-see for me over the next week.
