AoT Santa Cruz #7 – Galaxies Near and Far – Thursday, September 6th, 2018 @ New Bohemia Brewing Co.

Mark your calendars! 

Astronomy on Tap is back on Thursday, September 6th at 6:30 pm at New Bohemia Brewing Co, in Santa Cruz, CA.

Galaxies Near and Far

Archeology is more than just an excuse for Harrison Ford to still have a film career! In the field of galactic archeology, we don’t dig through the refuse and remnants of old civilizations. UCSC graduate student Alexa Villaume will sift through the light of galaxies to reconstruct the ‘stellar fossil record,’ helping us to understand how the past shapes what galaxies look like today.

Traveling even further back in time, join UCSC Professor Brant Robertson in exploring what the universe was like long ago, and far, far away. By finding the most distant galaxies in the universe, we can gain a window billions of years into the past and at the furthest reaches of observable space. Come learn how those galaxies were discovered and what the newest plans for using the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope are to find yet earlier and more distant galaxies!

Our events are geared toward the general public, so please bring your curiosity, questions, and love for space. Happy hour extends for the duration of the event, in addition to food trucks, trivia, and swag! Astronomy on Tap is free of charge and open to anyone 21+.
