Astronomy on Tap Triangle #28: Tuesday, May 4, 2021

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-eighth event held from 7-9 PM on Tuesday, May 4th!

This time we’ll hear from Dr. Greg Sloan* who will introduce the James Webb Space Telescope, one of the largest and most powerful telescopes ever built — set to launch later this year. Don’t miss it!

*Dr. Greg Sloan is an adjunct professor at UNC Chapel Hill, as well as a support scientist at the Space Telescope Science Institute, where he works on the Mid-Infrared Instrument set to launch on the James Webb Space Telescope. Previously, he was a senior research associate at Cornell University. He received a B.S. in Physics and Astronomy from Northwestern University and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Wyoming.

Our FREE Astronomy on Tap events features 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.
