Celtic Cosmos: ‘Space and Science Fiction’

For the month of August 2020, the Tsukure Hub on Ayr High Street will be given over to a space and science fiction exhibition organised by Celtic Cosmos.

Events during the month will include a programme of talks, and the launch of the latest book by local author Duncan Lunan, “The Other Side of the Interface”, the second collection of his astronomy and space related stories to be published by Other Side Books.

The exhibition is in the planning stage but it’s hoped to include historic charts of the stars, planets and space exploration, astronomical photographs by local observers, displays of art and models by local artists, as well at least one big name from further afield – all in discussion, to be confirmed.

Organisations willing to be represented include the Open University, the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory and local astronomical societies, and there will be a science fiction bookshop featuring books by Duncan Lunan and other Scottish SF authors, as well as a more general Dealers’ Room.

Talks and the book launch will be held in the Tsukure Hub’s new main lobby, formerly a jeweller’s, and it’s hoped that the glass cases still in place will house spacecraft models and related memorabilia.

More details of the exhibits, and the artists, photographers and writers taking part, will be released as they are confirmed.
