Astronomy on Tap ATX #27: Jan 17 @The North Door

Happy New Year! In the first AoTATX show of 2017, we present three awesome talks:

We Will be Able to Detect Evidence for Life on Other Planets without Going There?
Detectability of life evidence on exoplanets (My Favorite Martian aka. Prof. Dan Jaffe)

The Discovery of Proxima b and the Habitability of Exoplanets
Earth-size planet around our nearest neighbor (Dr. Mike Endl)

Why Scientists and Fiction Writers Have More in Common than They Think They Do?
Overlap of science and fiction (Sailor Moontornvat aka. Christina Soontornvat; @soontornvat)

AoTATX#27 will be hosted by our Host Binary Stars, A$AP Rocky Planet (Raquel Martinez) and AstroBoz (Brandon Bozek)! In addition, AoTATX#27 will feature Astronomy in the News, trivia, and some brand new giveaways. Local artists will also have astronomy related art on display and the 5th Dimension Books community book store will be parked outside. Finally, our own Star Party Queen (Lara Eakins) will have telescopes on hand to look for exciting objects in the night sky (weather permitting)! Join us for a night full of astronomy fun over pints of beer!
