UCD Physics student Cillian Byrne shares his experience of interning at the European Astronaut Centre (EAC) in Germany as part of the MSc in Space Science & Technology. Cillian is working on the Spaceship EAC project which is laying the foundations of research for ESA's future Moon Village and he has even had the opportunity to meet ESA astronaut Tim Peake after his return from 6 months on the International Space Station.
Prof. Padraig Dunne formally launched a call for founding donors for the Thomas Preston Scholarship Fund at Physics 52 – our annual alumni event commemorating 52 years of Physics at UCD Belfield. Through the fund, the UCD School of Physics hopes to support talented students through their PhD in fundamental physics, thereby growing our vibrant community of physicists at the leading edge of teaching and research. Currently, the School’s most pressing need is funding for this type of scholarship.
