InSight is a robotic Mars lander planned for launch in March 2016. The name is a backronym for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport.
The mission's objective is to place a stationary lander equipped with a seismometer and heat transfer probe on the surface of Mars to study its early geological evolution. This would bring new understanding of the Solar System's terrestrial planets — Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars — and Earth’s Moon. By reusing technology from the Mars Phoenix lander, which successfully landed on Mars in 2008, it is expected that the cost and risk will be reduced.

The Real Slum Dogs; Journey of Hope
Première: Thursday 26th March 2015
The documentary is a raw and real reflection of modern day life in Kolkata, India.
From the shocking scenes of child labourers working in the city’s main dump at Howrah and the generational prostitution on Kolkata’s
main highways to the on-going rescue operations and educational projects provided by the Hope Foundation;
this documentary charters the journey and lives of the forgotten children of Calcutta through the work of the charity organisation
as they endeavour to rescue a generation from a life of drug use and sexual abuse.
Throughout this ‘Journey Of Hope’, Limerickman Deric Hartigan comes face-to-face with the harsh reality of slum life in the city,
meets the children who have been recused from a life of destitution, talks to those on the ground who work tirelessly to make
it happen and visits the projects directly funded by the Irish people.
Shocking and inspiring, this gripping documentary will expose the underbelly of a city and a culture where you have to fight to survive.
