What would happen if you were transported to the surface of an exoplanet? How did Astronomy on Tap get its start and what has been its trajectory over the last decade? Join us Wednesday, June 15th at 7:30PM for an evening of astronomy as we discuss these topics and more at our next Astronomy on Tap. We'll host two ~15 minute talks, Q&A, and then follow it up with interactive, astronomical pub trivia, guided stargazing, and live music at our first in-person Astro on Tap event in over two years!

7:30 p.m. - Cosmology of Astronomy on Tap

8:30 p.m. - Astro-themed Pub Trivia

About the Series

Astronomy on Tap is a nation-wide phenomenon where professional astronomers give informal science talks in local bars with accompanying pub trivia and interactions with the public. Scientists at Caltech organize the Los Angeles Chapter of Astronomy on Tap one Monday a month. We're now hosting events at the outdoor patio of the Dog Haus Biergarten in Old Town Pasadena (with inexpensive parking structure one block away).

Each event consists of two ~15-minute informal science talks given by researchers in astronomy, physics, and space science followed by Q&A. The second half of the night is devoted to astronomy-themed pub trivia with lots of interaction with the audience. For more information and recordings of past events, please see the Caltech Astro Outreach website and the Caltech Astro YouTube page.
