This June, #AoTATX33 brings you three exciting talks: Dr. Kim Sokal will tell us about IGRINS, a high resolution infrared spectrometer developed in UT-Austin and operated at McDonald Observatory, Major Merger (Sinclaire Manning) will present “Observing the Invisible Universe” with long-wavelength astronomy, and Agent of S.H.E.L.A. (Sydney Sherman) will explain how measuring the size of the Earth has led to the buildup of the cosmological distance ladder in “The Most Important Distance on Earth”.
#AoTATX33 will be hosted by our Host Binary Stars, A$AP Rocky Planet (Raquel Martinez) and AstroBoz (Dr. Brandon Bozek)! In addition, #AoTATX33 will feature Astronomy in the News, trivia, and some brand new giveaways. Finally, we will have telescopes on hand to look for exciting objects in the night sky (weather permitting)! Join us for a night full of astronomy fun over pints of beer!
As always, AoTATX is FREE and open to all ages! The North Door bar opens at 6pm. The show starts at 7:30pm. Find us on Facebook (Astronomy on Tap ATX) and Twitter (@AoTATX).
