Astronomy on Tap Tucson #88: New Worlds + Black Holes

June 20, 2023 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM MST

Advertisement for Space Drafts 88. The Space Drafts logo is in the center with speaker headshots to the side. Text describes the talk titles, speaker names, event location information, and livestream link. The background shows talk-related images: an image of a planet with rings, and an artist's impression of a black hole with an accretion disk and jet.

Tucson’s local flavor of Astronomy on Tap, Space Drafts, presents its 88th edition featuring Sarah Moran and Harry Krantz! Plus Astronomy in the News with Drs. Jackie Champagne and Danny Krolikowski!

Strange New Worlds Through the Eyes of JWST – Sarah Moran


Giant Black Holes and How We Study Them – Haowen Zhang

On tap this month, we have Dr. Sarah Moran from the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory telling us all about the JWST view of planets (both inside and outside of our Solar System), and Steward Observatory’s Haowen Zhang talking about black holes and how we learn about them! We’ll also be hearing all about the latest Astronomy in the News from Drs. Jackie Champagne and Danny Krolikowski, so please join us to learn about the latest and greatest in the astronomical world.

We’ll be out on the patio of Borderlands Brewing Company (119 E. Toole Ave, Tucson AZ, accessible via stairs and a ramp) at 7:30pm Arizona time on June 20. There is street parking near the venue, and several bus lines run to the Toole/7th Ave. bus stop right next door. If you’re feeling up for a bit of walking, the Sun Link street car runs to Congress/6th Ave (if going westbound) or SL/Broadway/Church (if going eastbound), about half a mile away from Borderlands. However, if you can’t make it in person, you can also join us online at bit.ly/SpaceDrafts88!
