Calling all space nerds! Catch UCSC Astrophysics Professors giving a lecture over beers at NuBo.
Planets Near and Far:
At this month’s Astronomy on Tap we’ll be spanning the distance scale of planets! Come to hear UCSC PhD candidate Rachel Maxwell speak about our nearest space-neighbor, the Moon! She’ll tell us why it’s important to understand magnetic fields around planets and what we can learn from studying the Moon’s lack of global magnetic field. We’ll then move away from our nearest neighbors and hear from UCSC PhD candidate Zack Briesemeister who develops technology to directly image planets outside our Solar System.
Our events are for everyone, so please bring your curiosity, questions, and love for space.
Happy hour extends for the duration of the event, in addition to food trucks, trivia, and swag! Astronomy on Tap is free of charge and open to all ages. #spacebeer
The Ate3One food truck will be serving their Modern Street Food. Mouth-watering comfort food that is fresh, delicious and sometimes “naughty”! Get here early and grab some food, a beer, and a good spot to enjoy the discussion.
