Astronomy on Tap DC returns to the 2nd floor of DC9 Nightclub on Wednesday June 27 to celebrate NASA Fermi’s 10th birthday! Our speakers will highlight some of Fermi’s most exciting discoveries with the following talks:

One Photon at a Time: Finding the Fastest Spinning Stars – Matthew Kerr (Naval Research Lab)
