UPDATE: This event has been cancelled. We tried to compete with all the other stuff going on during NY ComicCon, but we didn’t sell enough tickets to cover costs. AMNH are working out refunds for people who bought tickets. We’ll also work with them to have another event soon!
NYC ComicCon seems to be expanding faster than the Universe these days (hey-oooo!), and this year Astronomy on Tap is joining in! We’re co-hosting a very special event at the American Museum of Natural History as part of NYC SuperWeek! Space Cadets Brian Levine (aka MC Tycho Brew-Ha-Ha) and Christina Pease (Brooklyn’s Friendly Neighborhood Astronomer) are presenting their hit planetarium show Sci-Fi Universe. DJ Carly Sagan will host a post-show cocktail hour in the Rose Center’s Hall of the Universe with Astronomy on Tap’s trademark astro-tainment: music, games, prizes, and glow necklaces, of course!
Tickets are available here.
Costumes and other stellar attire encouraged! Check out STARtorialist for inspiration.

Join us for a fun-filled night where 3 professional astronomers will share the wonders of the Universe in the back room of BAR in New Haven! Our talk line-up for the night:
Putting an End to Twinkling Little Stars – Ji Wang (Postdoctoral Associate – Yale University Department of Astronomy)
Dark Matter and Tiny Galaxies – Erik Tollerud (Hubble Fellow – Yale University Department of Astronomy)
Seeing Double: Studying the Universe with Gravitational Lenses – Ivelina Momcheva (Postdoctoral Associate – Yale University Department of Astronomy)
Event is 21+, starting at 8 PM. We’ll also have prize giveaways, including original Hubble press releases from the early 90s!
Of course you devoured Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey last spring, but we guarantee you’ve never seen it like this before! On Monday, September 29, interact with the cosmos live at Videology in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with the lovable, irreverent scientists from Astronomy on Tap. Never content to let Neil Tyson have all the glory, we’ll share what we would have done differently (Drunk Astronomy, anyone?), reveal behind-the-scenes secrets, and generally celebrate the fleeting appearance of real science on network TV. Videology has a full bar with wine, draft and bottled beer, and a cocktail menu plus classic movie theater food like popcorn, nachos, pretzels, and hot dogs. And of course we’ll have games, very special prizes, and Astro-tainment radiated by DJ Carly Sagan!
Seating is limited so arrive early!
