On June 18, join Astronomy on Tap ATX at our 57th event! At #AoTATX57, we will commemorate the 20th year of the Chandra X-Ray Observatory with three all-star talks on X-ray astronomy. Professor X-Ray (Prof. Dave Pooley) from Trinity University will bring us updates on the latest research of the most energetic astrophysical phenomena using high-energy observations. Dr. Jeremy Drake from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory will give us a review of highlights in the 20 years of the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. Dr. David Wilson from UT will then conclude the evening by telling us about bleeding-edge Chandra science.
#AoTATX57 will be hosted by our Host Stars, Chaos Cloud (Rebecca Larson) and AstroALee (Dr. Aaron Lee)! In addition, #AoTATX57 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!
