Astronomy on Tap is back in Lansing for the new year! At our fifth event, we’ll have another two awesome talks by local scientists. Our first will focus on how one MSU professor is using a telescope that is literally built into the ice at the South Pole to observe neutrinos and probe the extragalactic universe. The second talk will highlight the ways in which one of the common molecules in your beer shows up in space. Can you guess which one? Make sure you’re there to find out!
As always, you can expected trivia-based raffle prizes, opportunities to chat with local astronomers, and a group Q & A session to close out the night!
Our featured speakers are Dr. Tyce DeYoung, professor of physics and astronomy at MSU, and Dr. Justin Linford, postdoctoral research associate in the department of physics and astronomy at MSU.
We can’t wait to see familiar faces and meet many new ones! As always, the event is free and there will be drink and food specials for attendees.
