Astronomy on Tap ATX #67 Special Hubble 30th Birthday Celebration! — April 21, 2020

Our next event will be hosted VIRTUALLY on April 21st at 7:30 pm CST.

We will be bringing you a virtual show for your streaming pleasure on April 21st at 7:30 pm CDT. The structure of the show may be a little different, but we’re working to bring you a great show nonetheless, with Astronomy fun and a celebration of the Hubble Space Telescope’s 30th Birthday!

You can watch the show live here:

Dr. Fritz Benedict will tell us about the history of the Hubble Space Telescope! Dr. Laura Kreidberg from the Center for Astrophysics, Harvard and Smithsonian, will tell us about using Hubble to detect atmospheres of planets around other stars! Finally, Dr. Steve Finkelstein will tell us about studying galaxies with Hubble!

#AoTATX67 will be hosted by our Host Stars, Chaos Cloud (Rebecca Larson) and Deep Space Shine (Dr. Micaela Bagley)! In addition, #AoTATX67 will feature Astronomy News by Whatamerger Jr. (Jackie Champagne) and It’s a TRAPPIST (Danny Krolikowski).

A note about helping out during this time:
In this time of uncertainty and upheaval, our hearts go out to The North Door and Pueblo Viejo staff, who are the most impacted by the lost revenue from all the event cancellations this season. We are so lucky to have The North Door as an incredible venue for our show and as great partners in bringing astro-awesomeness to you! Please keep them in your thoughts! We are also asking our amazing audience to consider supporting The North Door and Pueblo Viejo by donating at this link, perhaps what you would normally tip your bartenders, perhaps a bar tip + the cost of a taco, anything you can contribute will mean a lot to the amazing people who make our show possible every month!

We are also working closely with Astronomy on Tap Headquarters to bring you more cool digital content in the coming weeks! We participated in an epic around-the-world live stream on April 9th with Astronomy on Tap Satellites all over the world! The link to watch the replay is here: AoTotC – on The Couch Edition

Enjoy Astronomy from your living room while you help #StopTheSpread and #FlattenTheCurve with #SocialDistancing!

We hope you are all staying safe and healthy and are diligently reciting the Star Trek intro while washing your hands.
