This year marks the bicentennial of John Tyndall, the physicist for whom we are named and Ireland’s most important Victorian scientist. His achievements range from proving the connection between atmospheric CO2 and the greenhouse effect to, most famously, the explanation for why the sky is blue.

A number of festivities encompasses Tyndall Science at Home (02 – 15 August), Heritage Week (15 – 23 August) and Science Week (08 – 15 November) as appropriate bookends for the celebration of a man who is such a significant Irish historical figure and such an important physicist, passionate scientist and dedicated educator.
