Astronomy on Tap Baton Rouge, September 27th

Join us in-person for the September edition of Astronomy on Tap at the Varsity Theatre in Baton Rouge, LA! If you can’t attend in person, worry not—we’ll be livestreaming the event on our YouTube channel as well.

As always, we’ll have games, raffles, glow sticks, swag, and space-themed drinks. 

~Michael Baer, an LSU astronomy graduate student, will illuminate us on “Evaluating Type IIn Supernovae with Duplicated Superfit”. Michael explores a groundbreaking classification method to evaluate type IIn supernova spectra against spectra of mimic events.

~Dr. Michela Negro, an LSU astronomy professor, joins us to honor “Celebrating 15 Years of the Fermi Mission”. In her talk, Dr. Negro will delve into the numerous scientific milestones achieved by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. From mapping the entire gamma-ray sky to real-time monitoring of cataclysmic cosmic explosions tracing back to the dawn of time, Fermi has been instrumental in redefining our understanding of the universe. Dr. Negro will also touch on how the telescope has altered the landscape of fundamental physics and offer insights into the promising future of the Fermi mission.
