Come check out Astronomy on Tap Triangle, our North Carolina chapter of short and engaging talks about astronomy over beer, held virtually on YouTube — this is our twenty-fourth event held from 7-9 PM on Tuesday, December 1st!
On December 1, in our last event of fall 2020, we are going nuclear. We are joined by Dr. Robert Janssens of UNC Chapel Hill, who will talk about “It’s Nuclear: The Hulk, Gamma rays, the Atomic Nucleus, and Shining Stars”. Don’t miss this opportunity to understand the small-scale physics of particles and atoms with a cosmic context!
Dr. Robert Janssens is the Edward G. Bilpuch Professor of Physics at UNC Chapel Hill where he studies nuclear reactions and their effects on astrophysical processes, and also builds the instruments to study them. He received his Ph.D. in Experimental Nuclear Physics and his B.S. in Physics and Education from from Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium.
Our FREE Astronomy on Tap events feature accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.
