Gather with other humanists for another Happy Hour Forum on Science and Culture presented by the Bell Museum. This month's topic is galaxy formation, using observations from both ground and space-based facilities. Event host, Scott Jackson, will arrive at 6 pm, when the doors open, and stake out a table near the front. He will be wearing a 'Radical Hospitalitarian' T-shirt and have a Humanists of Minnesota sign.
Presenter for the evening is Prof. Claudia Scarlata whose work covers all evolutionary stages of galaxies from their infancy at the end of the dark ages to their maturity in the local universe. This approach allows her to determine what mechanisms are important in each epoch of the galaxy formation process and to understand if their roles change with time.
Because the programs often sell out, Scott highly recommends buying tickets in advance and showing up well before the start of the program at 7pm. For ticket information, go to the Bell Museum website at http://www.bellmuseum.umn.edu/ForAdults/CafeScientifique/
