On February 19, Astronomy on Tap ATX will bring you our 53rd event. At #AoTATX53, Prof. Neal Evans will travel with us to the cradle of stars in the local galaxy and tell us about how the interstellar medium is turned into stars. Major Merger (Sinclaire Manning) will then tell us stories of the “hidden figures” in the community of astronomy research, highlighting lesser known astronomers who deserve more recognition. Andromedreia (Dreia Carrillo) will conclude the evening with her research on the chemical cartography of the Milky Way.
#AoTATX53 will be hosted by our Host Stars, A$AP Rocky Planet (Raquel Martinez) and AstroALee (Dr. Aaron Lee)! In addition, #AoTATX53 will feature Astronomy News by Major Merger (Sinclaire Manning) and Astrobit (Dr. Brian W Mulligan), trivia, and new 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. You can tweet with #AoTATX53 to ask questions during the show! Find us on Facebook (Astronomy on Tap ATX), Twitter (@AoTATX), and Instagram (@AoTATX).
