Astronomy on Tap: March 23rd
March 23, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
THIS MONTH we will be celebrating our one year anniversary in Seattle with a power-house omnibus presentation bonanza by many of the speakers who have spoken at AoT Seattle over our first year. They will each give lightning talks about new developments their fields since they gave their first talk – these lightning talks will include updates on New Horizon’s visit to Pluto by Brett Morris, circumbinary planet discoveries by Kolby Weisenburger, potential transiting alien megastructures by Rodrigo Luger, and many more! But don’t worry – if you missed their first talk, we’ll bring you up to speed.
We will be selling special commemorative glasses with the new Astronomy on Tap Seattle logo designed by Nell Byler, which you can get with barrel-aged pints of AoT’s favorite “The Big Sipper” Imperial Scotch Ale. Don’t miss our first birthday and be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get updates on future events!
Each FREE Astronomy on Tap event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Most events have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.
Originally founded in NYC, this is our twelfth month in Seattle presented by graduate students in astronomy at the University of Washington. We’re thrilled to be hosted by Ballard’s own Bad Jimmy’s who will have ~9 beers (and plenty of astronomy) on tap.
