A Trip to The Moon – In the Footsteps of 2 Irish Scientists (#109)
Welcome to Season 1, Episode 9 of the Letter from Ireland Show. In this episode, Carina looks at the story of two Irish scientists who made a big impact on the scientific world. One was born in Ireland and left - the other was born in England, but came to Ireland where he is buried.
We are delighted to bring you Episode 9 of The Letter from Ireland Show – a weekly podcast that goes out each Thursday from our cottage in County Cork. Tune in to this episode – and dive straight in to a bit of Irish caint, ceóil agus craic (conversation, music and craic!).
In this episode, Carina reads two of our letters from Ireland. First up we have the story of two Irish women who made a big impression on the scientific world (as well as the Moon!), and the letter is called: “Let us Gaze at the Moon and Stars”. Then, she moves on to the story of another Scientist – this time a man who is considered the father of the logic that drives much of the computing power that we have around us. The letter is entitled: “Ones and Zeros and the Way we live Today”.
