Astronomy on Tap: Cosmos Viewing

Bad Jimmy’s

December 16, 2015 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

AoT_Dec15Each 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 tenth 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.

THIS MONTH is the third in the Cosmos: A Personal Voyage Screening Series, where we will host a guided viewing of the original Cosmos series with Carl Sagan (1980). A guest speaker will introduce the episode, lead discussions and answer questions about it, and give updates on discoveries since the series first aired.

As always, we will accompany the main event with Cosmos-themed trivia, based partly on things you’ll learn during the episode.
