Space Cafe is hosting its next next event in Tokyo! We will be at
Good Heavens British Bar in Shimokitazawa for a space themed
talk + drinks.

Interstellar Memes:
what would aliens see if they pointed telescopes/radio dishes at Earth?

This month Don Warren (iTHEMS program, RIKEN) talks about 'Interstellar Memes'. The Universe is a big place. How much of it knows about Leeroy Jenkins? Shakespeare? Earth?

- speaker's information:
Don Warren is a research scientist with the iTHEMS program at RIKEN. He earned his Ph.D. at NC State University in 2015, and has worked in theoretical astrophysics ever since. His primary research focus is high-energy phenomena, such as cosmic rays, supernovae, and gamma-ray bursts (though he is branching out into virtual reality and virology). He lives in Tokyo with his wife, his daughter, and their collection of more than a hundred board games. He is also very passionate about American food, like Chex Mix and novelty burritos.

Doors open at 7:30pm | Speaker starts at 8pm

Tickets can be purchased at the door for ¥1500 and cover your first drink.
