Astronomy on Tap Tucson #97: Giant Rockets, Giant Telescopes, and Giant Exoplanets, oh my!

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

Advertisement for Space Drafts 97. 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 concept image of several telescopes being released from a rocket, and an artist's impression of a giant planet near a star.

Tucson’s local flavor of Astronomy on Tap, Space Drafts, presents its 97th edition! This month, we’re featuring talks by NSF NOIRLab postdoc Dr. Arvind Gupta and University of Arizona optical sciences professor Dr. Daewook Kim, plus Astronomy in the News with Drs. Jackie Champagne and Danny Krolikowski!

The dawn of giant rockets delivering giant telescopes – Daewook Kim


Searching for Snapshots of Giant Exoplanet Migration – Arvind Gupta

On tap this month, we have NSF NOIRLab postdoc Dr. Arvind Gupta talking about giant exoplanet migration and University of Arizona optical sciences professor Dr. Daewook Kim telling us about the future of giant space telescopes. And Steward postdocs Jackie Champagne and Danny Krolikowski will be telling us all about the latest and greatest astronomical news!

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 April 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. And you can also join us online at bit.ly/SpaceDrafts97 if you can’t make it in person!
