This month, #SpaceDrafts (Tucson’s local flavor of Astronomy on Tap) will rock!

Climate Science… on Mars & The Rocky Worlds of TESS!!

You think Arizona summers are extreme? Join LPL grad, Jonathan Bapst, to learn about the climate on Mars. It’s a dry cold! Then, join PSI scientist and prodigious observer, Gil Esquerdo (yes, he has an asteroid named after him), to learn about the successor to the incredible Kepler Mission: NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite – TESS, and how we’re going to find tens of rocky worlds like Earth!

Astronomy on Tap – Lansing – #12 on Wednesday, August 10


Now that we’ve recovered from our 1-year anniversary, we return to the Beer Grotto on August 10th for another Astronomy on Tap! At this event, we’ll explore interesting objects in our solar system that aren’t the usual planets we know and love while also discussing the nature of planets around other stars.  Make sure you enter to win one of our awesome raffle prizes and don’t miss out on the opportunity to talk to some of the scientists that live and work in the Lansing area. Our featured speakers include recent MSU PhD graduate, Dr. Thomas Connor, and Rachel Salmon, a current PhD student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at MSU. Come hungry, thirsty, and curious!
