Astronomy on Tap Tucson #95: India’s Solar Space Telescope + Astronomical Explosions

February 20 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM MST

Advertisement for Space Drafts 95. The Space Drafts logo is in the center with speaker headshots to the left and right. Text describes the talk titles, speaker names, event location information, and livestream link. The background shows two talk-related images: a spacecraft with solar panels deployed with the Sun in the background and a galaxy disk with a dark sphere at its center emitting two jets.

Tucson’s local flavor of Astronomy on Tap, Space Drafts, presents its 95th edition featuring talks by Steward graduate student Aafaque Khan and Steward postdoc Manisha Shrestha, and Astronomy in the News with Drs. 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 February 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. And you can also join us online at bit.ly/SpaceDrafts95 if you can’t make it in person!
