Astronomy on Tap Tucson #94: Pulsars and Poetry

January 16 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM MST

Advertisement for Space Drafts 94. 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 two talk-related images: a radio telescope dish with a glowing spectrum leading from it, backgrounded by the galactic plane, and abstract line art in blue, red, and black contained in a circle.

Tucson’s local flavor of Astronomy on Tap, Space Drafts, presents its 94th edition featuring talks by graduate students Maria Mutz and Fuda Nguyen, and Astronomy in the News with Drs. Jackie Champagne and Danny Krolikowski!

The Discovery of Pulsars: a Guide to Unidentified Blinking Objects – Maria Mutz


Space Travel by Words: Poetry About Up There, Down Here, and In Between – Fuda Nguyen

On tap this month, we have physics graduate student Maria Mutz talking about pulsars and other unidentified blinking objects, and Lunar and Planetary Laboratory graduate student Fuda Nguyen giving us an exclusive poetry reading! And you won’t want to miss the latest Astronomy in the News with Steward postdocs Jackie Champagne and Danny Krolikowski!

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 MST on January 16. 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/SpaceDrafts94.
