THIS MONTH we will be joined by Dr. Jim Davenport, who will speak about his work using data from the Gaia mission, a revolutionary project that will give astronomers an unprecedented glimpse into the structure of the Galaxy. We’ll also hear from Akaxia Cruz, who uses cutting edge computer simulations to understand the 85% of matter in the Universe that we can’t see.
This month we are excited to again be hosted by Peddler Brewing Company in their large beer garden. Bring lawn chairs if you’d like to to make your own front-row seating! There will be a food truck at the event, but outside food is also welcome.
Each FREE Astronomy on Tap event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Most events have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.
