NEW LOCATION: this month is the first month at our new home at Hilliard’s Beer! In this much larger space we hope to continue to grow, so invite all your friends! The event will be on April 27th from 7-9pm.
THIS MONTH we will hear talks from: the newest UW Professor of astronomy Jessica Werk on “The History of You: The Rather Tumultuous Past of the Atoms in Your Body”, and from UW graduate student Ethan Kruse on “To infinity and beyond: The mind-boggling scale of the universe”.
Each FREE Astronomy on Tap event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Most events have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.
Originally founded in NYC, this is our 13th month in Seattle presented by graduate students in astronomy at the University of Washington. We’re thrilled to be hosted by Ballard’s own Hilliard’s Beer who will have a variety of beers (and plenty of astronomy) on tap.
Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get updates on future events! And don’t forget to RSVP!
This month, #SpaceDrafts is with Dr. Pat Kelly (UC Berkeley) & Margaret Landis (UA LPL):
Deja Vu With Supernova Refsdal, and Martian Melts
Ever get that sense that you’ve seen something before? Well if you are Pat Kelly and team, you’d be right! Watch the same supernova go off again and again, each time teaching us more about gravity! Also, UA scientists have been gathering the best data to look for evidence of water and ice on Mars.
Come take a look! Now in Stereo 3D!!! 😀
The Borderlands Brewing Company (119 E. Toole Ave., Tucson)
Wednesday, April 13th, 7.00pm (Stargazing starts at Sunset)
Please. Thank you!
As always, Space Drafts is FREE and open to all ages! Bring your four-legged friends too!
We’re super excited to announce AoT Ann Arbor on April 12th 2016 7:00 PM at Conor O’Neills Irish Pub. Not only is this your usual Astronomy on Tap event with talks, prizes, and beer; it’s also a celebration of Yuri’s Night – an event to commemorate one of the most exciting feats of human space exploration.
On April 12th 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first person to journey into outer space in a historic orbit of the Vostok 1 spacecraft. Join us as we hear about the past and future of space exploration from University of Michigan Professors Susan Lepri and Mark Moldwin.
