Astronomy on Tap ATX #16: February 16 at The North Door

AoTATX just keeps growing! Our record crowd last time was awesome and to build on that we have another 3 amazing talks for y’all:

Lonely, Wandering Planets
Ultracool Tool (aka Dr. Trent Dupuy) will talk about host-less planets that don’t have a star to orbit.

Killer (and Some Not So Killer) Asteroids
Moondancer (aka Dr. Judit Gyorgyey-Ries) will discuss how afraid we should all be about killer asteroids (spoiler alert: not very).

Building the Universe in a Box
Starlord (aka almost-Dr. Jacob Hummel) will show some amazing movies of astronomical computer simulations and talk about how he and other astronomers try to build everything in the Universe inside supercomputers.
