Exoplanets! Are they just like us or are their properties completely alien from us? From just a few discoveries to hundreds, the number of known exoplanets has skyrocketed in just the last decade. For years astronomers have been using state of the art instruments to try to get a peek at our distant neighbors and find out what they could possibly be like. Our hosts into this exploration of new worlds will be a couple of researchers who’ve been devoted to the task of finding, characterizing, and understanding exoplanets: Juliette Becker and Dr. Emily Rauscher.
Join us at Conor O’Neills Pub at 7 PM for a foray into discovering the hidden properties of exoplanets, as well as beer, raffle prizes, and trivia!
Talks:

Juliette Becker: “Measuring and Weighing Exoplanets, Big and Small”

Dr. Emily Rauscher: “Dissecting the Anatomies of Exoplanets”

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.
