On April 16, Astronomy on Tap ATX will bring you our 55th event. At #AoTATX55, Feedback Fighter (Briana Indahl) will tell us about outflows in M82, a galaxy 12 million light-years away. We will then welcome Ciaran Fairhurst from University of Sussex to update us with the latest research on gravitational waves from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO). Bond, Carbon-Bond (Brandt Gaches) will conclude the evening with stories about cosmic rays in star formation.
#AoTATX55 will be hosted by our Host Stars, Chaos Cloud (Rebecca Larson) and AstroALee (Dr. Aaron Lee)! In addition, #AoTATX55 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!
