Astronomy on Tap Triangle #16: Tuesday, October 1, 2019

Come check out Astronomy on Tap Triangle, our North Carolina chapter of short and engaging talks about astronomy over beer, held at the taproom of Fullsteam Brewery in Durham, NC — this is our sixteenth event on Tuesday, October 1!

Join us for some spooky supernova talks —Dr. Amber Lauer* and Charles Stapleford** will discuss origin of the atoms that make up us and everything around us!

He graduated from the University of Iowa in 2014 with a triple major in Physics, Astronomy, and Mathematics, and he also minored in French. He received a Master of Science in Physics from NC State in 2016.

*Dr. Amber Lauer is a Postdoctoral Researcher at Triangle Universities Nuclear Lab (TUNL, pronounced “tunnel”) where she simulates the interiors of stars and their explosions. She graduated from Portland State University with a B.S. in Math in 2007, and she received her M.S. in Physics in 2011 from Portland State University. She completed her Ph.D. in Physics in 2017 from Louisiana State University.

Our FREE Astronomy on Tap events feature accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.
