Astronomy On Tap - The First Ever Galactic Supernova and Observing in Las Campanas

Tue, November 13, 2018

7:00 pm


Join us this November for beer, science, and good times. We'll be taking over The Loft again to learn how astronomers use tiny telescopes in space to study massive stars and how they search the cosmos for black holes. We'll get to hear from Dr. Noel Richardson from the University of Toledo and Laura Shishkovsky from MSU. Of course, we'll also have trivia questions, raffle prizes, and a Q&A session with local scientists.

As always, this is a FREE event. Doors open at 7pm and the event starts at 7:30pm. If you'll be showing up hungry, grab a bite to eat from a local Lansing eatery on the way and bring it with!

If you need elevator access, ask for assistance from the staff inside of Taps 25.
