Astronomy on Tap Tucson #89: Mass Effect + Star Stories

July 18, 2023 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM MST

Advertisement for Space Drafts 89. The Space Drafts logo is in the center with speaker headshots to the sides. Text describes the talk titles, speaker names, event location information, and livestream link. The background shows talk-related images: an image of a spiral galaxy, and an image of an alien base from the Mass Effect video game.

Tucson’s local flavor of Astronomy on Tap, Space Drafts, presents its 89th edition featuring Jasmin Washington and Jeniveve Pearson! Plus Astronomy in the News with Dr. Danny Krolikowski!

It’s Mass Effect, Not Weight Effect: Astronomy and Physics in the Mass Effect Universe – Jasmin Washington


Once Upon a Time, There Was a Massive Star – Jeniveve Pearson

On tap this month, we have Steward Observatory graduate students Jeniveve Pearson and Jasmin Washington! Jeniveve will be telling us the life story of a massive star, and Jasmin will teach us all about how physics works in the Mass Effect video game series! We’ll also be hearing all about the latest Astronomy in the News from Dr. 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 July 18. 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/SpaceDrafts89!

As always, Space Drafts is FREE and open to all ages! Bring your four-legged friends too!
