AoT NYC Astro 101: The Basics, Thursday June 30 at the Way Station in Brooklyn

Ah, the good ol’ college days, where we learned some stuff and drank bunch. JUST LIKE ASRTONOMY ON TAP! So, NYC Tappers, join us at 7pm on June 30th at the Way Station for the first in a loose series of Astro 101 events! We’re asking three big questions: (1) What is a Planet? by Mark Popinchalk; (2) What is a Star? by Kate Miller; and, um (3) …well, we don’t have #3 yet, because <drumroll please> we want YOU <cymbal crash!> to ask it! What’s that really important, fundamental thing you want us to talk about? Is it moon phases? Seasons? What is a galaxy? How do telescopes work? Did we really land on the moon? (cough, yes! but you can still ask, cough) It’s a choose-your-own-space-adventure talk! Use our Facebook event page to RSVP and ask your questions by June 23rd. Then join the Friendly Neighborhood Astronomer Irene Pease, plus Demitri Muna and MC Tycho Brewhaha for a night of science, fun, and drinking! If we choose to answer your question, and you’re there, then you’ll win a special prize!
