What’s the difference between an astronaut and an astrophysicist? Astronaut Neil Armstrong and Astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell Burnell are in a pickle – they have to pack for their adventures but all their items are in a muddle!

In this museum pop-up, you’ll encounter handling objects all to do with space – and must help pack them into the correct suitcases. Through engaging with our staff, discover why each item, from weights to plants, a torch and a petri-dish, might be important to a space scientist and how they might use them, while learning all about the Irish impact in space science.

Included for free as part of an EPIC entry ticket, we can’t wait to see you there!
