Hornøya's Seabird Colony

From June 10th to July 12th, you can follow a live show from a bird cliff on an island called Hornøya, in the distant north-east of Norway.  About 100,000 sea birds are nesting in the steep mountainside at Hornøya, near Vardø in Finnmark.

Apollo 11 Moon Landing 45th Anniversary

Apollo 11 Moon Landing 45th Anniversary

The Apollo 11 Lunar Module Eagle, in a landing configuration was photographed in lunar orbit from the Command and Service Module Columbia. Inside the module were Commander Neil A. Armstrong and Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin. The long rod-like protrusions under the landing pods are lunar surface sensing probes. Upon contact with the lunar surface, the probes sent a signal to the crew to shut down the descent engine.

Television and Radio producer Pat O'Mahony speaks to Derek about the landing as Man first walked on the Moon 45 years ago yesterday (July 20, 1969) when American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin opened the hatch to the Apollo 11 Lunar Module Eagle and set foot on the surface marking mankind’s greatest achievement.

Charles Fort Wedding

Charles Fort Wedding

We are in the full throes of wedding fever, Churches, registry offices, indoor venues and now outdoor venues  are packed up and down the country with brides and grooms making hay while the sun shines, so to speak. We heard recently that a wedding with a difference was coming up.

Katriona Mc Fadden went out to investigate Chales Fort Weddings for The Mooney Show.

 

Strange Weather

We are obsessed with the weather. It is a powerful, shared daily experience, offering us an immediate talking point with which to engage our fellow citizens. Yet when we talk about climate change the sense of guilt or powerlessness is enough to kill the conversation.

We sent our reporter Terry Flanagan into The Science Gallery to look at the new exhibition on Strange Weather. It runs until the 5th of October.
