From: Marc M.
Sent on: Tuesday, December 20, 2011 9:08 AM

As Newtonmas approaches - Sir Isaac turns 370 on the 25th - on behalf of the Atlanta Science Tavern, I would like to wish everybody “reason’s greetings” and to take this opportunity to fill you in on what we have in store as the new year begins.

Remember you can follow us on Twitter @sciencetavern and on our Facebook page.


January meetups

Wed, Jan 11, 7p
Mars Curiosity Rover - Assessing the Conditions for Life on the Red Planet
Please join this installment of Science Rathskeller at Java Vino as our own Solar System Ambassador for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Ginny Mauldin-Kinney, gives us an in depth look at the Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft now winging its way toward an August rendezvous with the Red Planet with the remarkable Curiosity Rover on board.

Sat, Jan 21, 7p
Showcasing International Science - Georgia Tech and Ireland Working Together NEW
Our monthly Manuel’s meetup - on the 3rd Saturday for a change - takes an exciting new turn in January. As part of an ongoing series in cooperation with the European consulates in Atlanta, we are pleased to welcome Paul Gleeson, Consul General of Ireland, who will introduce us to the variety of work that his consulate does here, including promoting opportunities for study abroad, and help us kick off the celebration of Dublin as the European City of Science of 2012. Shane Owens of GTRI will tell us more about science collaborations underway between Georgia Tech and its research counterparts in the Republic of Ireland.

Sun, Jan 29, 4p
"The Creation of the World" - Exploring the Intersection of Music and Science NEW
This novel musical program, sponsored by the Emory Chamber Music Society of Atlanta and the Center for Chemical Evolution, will begin as a “contrapuntal” conversation between two distinguished master teachers, research biologist David Lynn and musician-composer Dwight Andrews. The second half of the program will include a performance by the Vega String Quartet featuring pianist William Ransom. Please refer to the above link for details, specifically costs of admission and directions to Emory’s Schwartz Center of Performing Arts. (Thanks to members Art Lewis and Jane Kelly for bringing this wonderful science-meets-culture event to my attention.)


A quick shoutout to me this time, as I took a turn as the Atlanta Science Tavern guest blogger on Holly Tucker’s fascinating Wonders & Marvels website. If you have an interesting tale to tell - specifically history with a science slant - please let me know and I will work to get you on our calendar of contributors.
