Astronomy on Tap ATX #51, December 18, 2018

At our last event in 2018, three UT professors will take us on a trip to the most amazing places in the Universe!  Prof. Keith Hawkins will tell us about his works as a galactic archaeologist, looking into the history of our home galaxy.  Dr. Dust Buster (Prof. Caitlin Casey) will then bring us stories from distant galaxies, telling us about the galaxy evolution and the star formation history of our Universe.  Last but not least, Director of Dark Matters (Prof. Mike Boyland-Kolchin) will tell us about cosmology, dark matters, and how the galaxies were born!

#AoTATX51 will be hosted by our Host Stars, A$AP Rocky Planet (Raquel Martinez) and AstroALee (Dr. Aaron Lee)! In addition, #AoTATX51 will feature Astronomy News by Major Merger (Sinclaire Manning) and Astrobit (Dr. Brian W Mulligan), trivia, and AoTATX merchandise.  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!

As always, AoTATX is FREE and open to all ages! The North Door alley bar opens at 6pm. The show starts at 7:30pm. Find us on Facebook (Astronomy on Tap ATX) and Twitter (@AoTATX).
