Irish Times BANG Science Monthly #8


BANG is back (with a bang). The Irish Times science monthly, aimed specifically at teens of all ages, returns just as the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition kicks off. Packed full of brilliant articles on what is happening in the world of science right now, BANG is a great read for any science enthusiast. In this issue Shane Hegarty looks at the spectacular space images snapped from a backyard in Dublin, Marie Boran looks at the scale of the universe, John Holden brings us some more "screen science", Aaron Meridith looks at what's been going on this month in science and there's a great look-back at some former winners of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition and what they're doing now. Also in this edition, yours truly investigates when will they invent the invisibility cloak and Claire O'Connell looks at the science of Beyonce!

It's another jammed packed edition and it's free in today's Irish Times! You can also follow BANG on Twitter or Facebook - go on, get some science in to you!
