I started Astronomy on Tap while I was a postdoctoral fellow at Yale University, but last August I moved to Taiwan for my new job. Emily, Demitri, and the rest of the gang have been doing an amazing job with events in New York City, New Haven, Columbus and more. I’m now a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Astronomy & Astrophysics at Academia Sincia in Taipei, Taiwan, and I’m pleased to announce Astronomy on Tap is going international with the start of the Taipei branch. It only seems right to have our first event at On Tap (seriously no joke!) in Taiwan. It can only be destiny! So if you’re in Taipei on May 27th please stop on by, it should be good fun and awesome science.
More details below:
May 27, 2014 7-9pm (On Tap, Taipei)
Because astronomy is always better with beer. Astronomers revealing how they explore the universe at a bar near you! A series of short FREE public science talks (talks will be in English) ranging from black holes to planets by astronomers and planetary scientists at the British pub On Tap. Afterwards there will be a chance to ask questions and talk one-on-one with the speakers.
