Have you ever dreamed of going into space or working in the space industry? Have you ever wondered how it would feel to be weightless, well now is your chance!

Diving into Space is a unique event combining space, weightlessness and diving into a truly memorable experience.

The event will kick off with a chance to hear from Ireland’s only Aquanaut Dr. Marc O’ Griofa who recently took part in NASA’s Extreme Environment Mission Operations programme (NEEMO) to the bottom of the sea. Marc will take his audience on a whirlwind adventure through the science of weightlessness and how SCUBA diving is used to train astronauts. After the presentation, Ireland’s top SCUBA instructors will bring you through the experience of weightlessness in the safety of a pool.

Please note the scuba diving element is available of over 14’s only. Snorkelling is available for all ages.
