AoT-Tucson #31: The Physics of Space Battles!

This month, #SpaceDrafts (Tucson’s local flavor of Astronomy on Tap), join your hosts + a panel of astrophysicists doing the panel that filled up rooms at Tucson Comic Con and the Tucson Science Fiction Convention (DESPITE George R. R. Martin trying to kill us!)

The Physics of Space Battles

Join your favorite snarky astrophysicists as we discuss starfighters, space lasers, giant explosions, faster than light travel and much more!

Learn about what’s pretty but totally fake, what’s real, and what’s stranger than fiction! It’s interactive! Yell your questions out during the talk – it’s like MST3k live only with beer, hot dogs and puppies!
