Ireland from SpaceFor years humans  have looked to the heavens.  The ancient Mayans, Aztecs and Egyptians all used the stars and planets to create calendars.  The 3 Wise Men followed a star to find the newborn Jesus in the stable.  Sailors use the position of the stars at night to find their way home.

On this site you will find lots of information about our journey into space.  From the first testing of rockets to building the International Space Station, from landing on the moon to the future of space travel this site will provide you with everything you ever wanted to know.  Along with lots of images, animations and video clips it provides a record of the past, present and future of Space Travel.  Click on any of the images to see a larger version of that picture.

On this page you will also find regular updates of what is happening with the International Space Station and the final few Shuttle Missions so keep checking back regularly.

    Site looks great Cormac. How can I work out when the space station is going to be over Limerick?

    Go to the Blogroll section at the end of the page. Find “International Space Station Locations” and click the ink. On this page you can bring up a map where you can highlight where in the world you are. Then you can bring up a 10 day forecast of when the ISS will be passing over head. At the moment it seems to be over Ireland in the mornings. But keep checking back regularly and you should come across an evening sighting too.
