THIS MONTH we will be joined by Samantha Gilbert, who will speak about the myth of the lone genius in science by taking a close look at the study of the Cosmic Microwave Background. We’ll also hear from Leah Fulmer on how astronomy’s most intriguing discoveries happen by accident.
This month we are excited to again be hosted by Peddler Brewing Company in their large beer garden. Bring lawn chairs if you’d like to to make your own front-row seating! There will be a food truck at the event, but outside food is also welcome.
Each FREE Astronomy on Tap event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Most events have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.
