On March 19, Astronomy on Tap ATX will bring you our 54th event. At #AoTATX54, we will welcome Rock ‘n’ Roll musician and “space guy” Jason Achilles to town. He will bring live music to the house, and he will tell us about the project to design the first microphone on Mars, to be put on NASA’s Mars 2020 rover. Dr. Will Best will bring us stories about brown dwarfs. Andromedreia (Dreia Carrillo) will then conclude the evening with her research on how stars may tell us about the galaxies they live in.
#AoTATX54 will be hosted by our Host Stars, A$AP Rocky Planet (Raquel Martinez) and AstroALee (Dr. Aaron Lee)! In addition, #AoTATX54 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 #AoTATX54 to ask questions during the show! Find us on Facebook (Astronomy on Tap ATX), Twitter (@AoTATX), and Instagram (@AoTATX).
