Astronomy on Tap Tucson #90: The Rubin Special

August 8, 2023 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM MST

Advertisement for Space Drafts 90. 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 artist's impression of a planet with a star field in the background, and an image of an observatory with the night sky in the background.

Tucson’s local flavor of Astronomy on Tap, Space Drafts, presents its 90th edition featuring Aaron Meisner and Agnès Ferté! Plus Astronomy in the News with Dr. Jackie Champagne! **Please note that this show will be on the SECOND Tuesday of the month instead of the usual third Tuesday**

Crowdsourcing the Hunt for Nearby Worlds – Aaron Meisner


An Observatory to Reveal the Invisible – Agnès Ferté

On tap this month, we have Rubin scientists Aaron Meisner and Agnès Ferté! Aaron will talk about hunting for nearby worlds with the help of the public and Agnès will give us a crash course on Rubin Observatory! We’ll also be hearing all about the latest Astronomy in the News from Dr. Jackie Champagne, 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 August 8. 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/SpaceDrafts90!
