Astronomy on Tap in the Triangle: How our Solar System Formed

September 6, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT

Come check out Astronomy on Tap Triangle, our North Carolina chapter of short and engaging talks about astronomy over beer. Find us in the taproom of Fullsteam Brewery in Durham, NC from 7-9 PM on Wednesday, September 6th!

Did you know that the Universe is very environmentally friendly? It recycles! Interstellar gas serves as the “recycling bin” for the Milky Way, helping create the planets we see today. Join us as Dr. Fabian Heitsch highlights some of the stations of this cosmic matter flow, from cloud collapse to planet formation.

Don’t forget to get there on time for a quick round of astronomy trivia and special prizes! We’ll also have some (earth-based) telescopes out front for you to check out if the weather cooperates.

There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer. We can’t wait to see you there!

Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook or sign up for our email list to get updates on future events.
