Astronomy on Tap NYC presents: Political “Science!” Join us as we dig into the science profession, looking behind the scenes at how it works, and some of what’s in the news. By the end of the night you’ll know some vocabulary and have a better understanding of science as a profession.
Our presenters include:
• Kostas Tsigaridis (Columbia/NASA GISS), “Artist’s Impression: The Science Behind a Press Release.”
• Sindy Escobar Alvarez (Doris Duke Foundation), on how science is funded
• Sara Camnasio (NYU), on visas and traveling for science.
• Summer Ash (Columbia), “Five Science Refugees who Aren’t Einstein.”
• Brian Levine aka MC Tycho Brewhaha
• Irene Pease aka the Friendly Neighborhood Astronomer
Join us at the Way Station! The game starts at 7:30pm, and happy hour runs until the talks start at 8pm. Prizes at 10pm.
