Wed, August 14, 2019

7:00 pm

Free

Join us in August for drinks, science, and fun times! We'll have one talk about the direct and indirect evidence of black holes from Elias Kammoun who will be making the trip up from Ann Arbor to join us for the evening. Our second talk will come from MSU NSF Fellow, Dr. Abbie Stevens, who will walk us through our current understanding of exoplanets! And, as is our way, there will be trivia questions and raffle prizes -- be there for your chance to win!

As always, this is a FREE event. Doors open at 7:00pm and the event will kick off around 7:30pm. If you'll be showing up hungry, feel free to bring something along or grab a slice from Good Slice Pizza Co. next to Taps 25.

If you need elevator access, ask the staff inside Tap 25 for assistance.

See you soon!
