Astronomy and society - Astronomy on Tap
Do you like discussing astronomy and space exploration topics? Do you like beer? We thought so too and we have some amazing news! Astronomy on Tap is here! Astronomy on Tap is not your typical science lecture. You will listen to talks by professional astronomers, scientists, and educators about a wide variety of space-related topics ranging from planets to black holes to galaxies to the beginning of the Universe. All this in the informal setting of a pub. In this occasion, Dr Pedro Russo will take us on a journey that will make you understand how the research that is done by scientists impacts our society. Pedro Russo is an assistant professor of astronomy & society at Leiden Observatory and the Department of Science Communication & Society and coordinator of the Astronomy & Society group. Pedro is the president of the International Astronomical Union Commission on Communicating Astronomy with the Public. During this talk, we will experience how the research done by astronomers have an impact on our society and everyday life. All ages and backgrounds welcome! The entry is free and no reservation is needed. We start at 20h but recommend you arrive early to save a seat and grab a drink. And of course, beside the talks, we will have fun games where you can win cool science prizes! More info: check out www.astronomyontap.nl! Hope to see you all there!
