Astronomy

Physics students and members of the RMC Astronomy Club worked this week with Apple iPads whilst participating in a workshop on the very “hot” topic of “solar flares”. With the excellent support of Trinity College Dublin our students learned about the sun and carried out a statistical analysis of a review of solar flares. According to members of the Astronomy Club there is a lot more to our sun than meets the eye…. many thanks to the members of the club and teacher Mr John Murphy for hosting the workshop.
