The ultimate Throwback Thursday features astrophysicists who study the most distant galaxies, that is to say, the youngest galaxies, that is to say, galaxies that are observed as far back in time as possible, and even the origin of the Universe itself. Confused? Grab a cold beer and let us explain.

How to Make Eggs in Space

Astronomy on Tap is co-sponsoring an exciting event at the New York Academy of Sciences on Thursday, March 13, part of the Mis/Adventures in Science Series.

How to Make Eggs in Space
Thursday, March 13, 2014 | 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Going to space is the ultimate adventure, the tiniest margin of error can determine if a mission is a success or a failure. But other concerns, like what to eat for dinner, are also important to those who venture into the final frontier.

The event features a discussion with astronaut Dr. Charles Camarda NASA nutritionist Dr. Sara Zwart moderated by David Mosher (Popular Science) followed by a wine and cheese reception. (Make sure to ask if the cheese is that green cheese NASA recovered from the Moon and hid in Area 51 for the last several decades…)
