Open Newsroom: Everything you want to know about space with Leo Enright

Space commentator Leo Enright joins us to answer your questions and to discuss Ireland’s place in space.

LAST UPDATE | 3 Sep 2021 / YouTube

IRELAND HAS PLAYED a real part in the advancement of space science and technology in Europe and there are plenty more opportunities out there.

So, how long before we have an Irish astronaut? Does Ireland really have a place in space? Should Ireland contribute more to the European Space Agency? We answer these questions and more with the help of our special guest, space commentator, Leo Enright.

The Good Information Project has been looking at Ireland and the EU’s role in space exploration, and during today’s Open Newsroom we delved into some of our recent research and tackled the questions sent in by readers.

You can catch up on the series so far here.
