The Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC), in association with Met Éireann and the Dublin Institute ICHEC Director Prof. JC Desplat and Minister Sean Sherlock TD explore the Harmonie weather model using ICHEC's 3D visualisation systemfor Advanced Studies (DIAS), is joining in the celebrations of Culture Night 2012 at Dunsink Observatory. Visitors will be able to view the historic observatory, once home to world-renowned mathematician and scientist Sir William Rowan Hamilton. The astronomers at DIAS will guide us through the story of its telescope and the remarkable Dublin-based company that became one of the greatest telescope makers in the world.

In the splendid surrounds of Dunsink Observatory, the Irish Centre for High End Computing (ICHEC) will display their 3D visualisation system, which is used to help understand the intricacies of the weather and explore some of the greatest cosmic mysteries of our age. In conjunction with experts from Met Éireann, ICHEC will present the results of cutting-edge weather simulations in stunning 3D graphics. During the night, the Institute's astrophysicists will present talks on some of their own favourite astronomical topics, from highlights of the Solar System to seeing the invisible.
