Astronomy on Tap ATX #40: January 23, 2017

Rescheduled for Tuesday, January 23, 2018!

This January, we present three exciting talks on kilonova, HETDEX, and white dwarfs! Prof. Quantum (aka. Prof. Craig Wheeler) will talk about the kilonova occurred after the collapse of two neutron stars, which also sent out gravitational wave and we detected it! Prof. Karl Gabhardt will bring us up to speed on the recent development of the HETDEX project at McDonald Observatory, studying dark matter and dark energy. Finally, we will have Dr. Barbara Castanheira discuss the seismic activity on white dwarfs!

AoTATX40 will be hosted by our Host Binary Stars, A$AP Rocky Planet (Raquel Martinez) and AstroBoz (Dr. Brandon Bozek)! In addition, AoTATX40 will feature Astronomy in the News, trivia, and AoTATX merchandise. Pueblo Viejo will be opened for tacos! Finally, we 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!
