"You are Made of Star Stuff"

Professor Jocelyn Bell Burnell

Professor Bell Burnell will deliver the Robinson Schools Lecture at 2.00 p.m. on Thursday 25th November 2004 at St Patrick's Academy, Dungannon.

What kind of atoms make up the molecules that make up the cells that make our bodies? Where did these atoms come from, and how did they get to be in our bodies? Life on Earth depends on the death of stars as well as on the Big Bang that created the Universe. There is star dust in your veins, and in an ultimate and intimate way we are children of the stars.

Teachers may request free tickets for this lecture from Mr Stephen Grew, St Patrick's Academy, 37 Killymeal Road, Dungannon, BT71 6DS. Tel.: 028-8772-7400; e-mail:
