We are people interested in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) topics and how these intersect with society, culture and startups. This group is co-managed by organizers from Space Cafe Tokyo and Nerd Nite Tokyo, which each have monthly events. Other organizers and ideas are welcome -- get in touch!
Every month, we have Space Cafe Tokyo at Good Heavens British Bar in Shimokitazawa, Tokyo. However, due to the COVID-19 situation, we have decided to hold events via Zoom and YouTube Live for now. Please gather in front of your computer/tablet/smartphone with drinks!
"Atmospheres of Planets around Other Stars"
What do we know about the atmospheres of exoplanets — planets around stars other than the Sun — and how have we learned it? This month, Dr. Yui Kawashima (RIKEN) will talk about our current understanding and what we expect to discover in the near future with new telescopes.
Dr. Yui Kawashima has been working to understand exoplanet atmospheres from a theoretical approach. After she got her Ph.D. from the University of Tokyo, she worked as a postdoc at ELSI, Tokyo Institute of Technology, and at SRON in the Netherlands, before starting work at RIKEN this past month.
