COSMOS Episode 3 at Videology in Williamsburg, Thursday, February 26 at 9 pm

Our next installment of our COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey screening at Videology in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is Thursday, February 26 at 9 pm!

Even if you devoured the series last spring, we guarantee you’ve never seen it like this before! Interact with the cosmos live with the lovable, irreverent scientists from Astronomy on Tap. Never content to let Neil Tyson have all the glory, we’ll share what we would have done differently (Drunk Astronomy, anyone?), reveal behind-the-scenes secrets, and generally celebrate the fleeting appearance of real science on network TV. Videology has a full bar with wine, draft and bottled beer, and a cocktail menu plus classic movie theater food like popcorn, nachos, pretzels, and hot dogs. In addition to special guest scientists for each episode we’ll have games, prizes, and Astro-tainment!

Episode 3 is When Knowledge Conquered Fear, featuring the original non-contemporaneous members of Spinal Tap (Edmund Halley, Robert Hooke, and Isaac Newton). We’ll be joined by special guest Dr. Matthew Stanley from NYU, who has a Ph.D. in History of Science and a Black Belt in setting the record straight!
