Join us on the Intrepid in Manhattan in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek! Astronomy on Tappers will be presenting Astro Café at the Intrepid on September 10. Our featured speaker is Rachael Livermore, an astrophysicist from the University of Texas at Austin. Joining her will be Summer Ash from Columbia University and Demitri Muna from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.
We’ll talk about Star Trek and space… all while literally next to the Enterprise! (The NASA space shuttle one, not the NCC-1701 one. Obviously, because the other one was was destroyed over the Genesis planet, so how could it be that one?)
Andrew Fazekas, author of “Star Trek: The Official Guide to Our Universe”, will also be there to talk about his book and sign copies.
The event is free, but you must RSVP on the Intrepid’s web site to attend. Space, science, Star Trek, trivia, prizes… it’s going to be a great night!
