Astronomy on Tap

"First Galaxies" and "Magnetic Fields"
Ethan Siegel, Senior Science Contributor, Forbes Magazine,
Sam Ponnada, PhD Candidate, Department of Astronomy, Caltech,

In what ways are the first galaxies different from our own, and how will we discover them? Why are magnetic fields so crucial for understanding how things move in space, and how can we see these invisible forces? Join us Monday, April 25th at 7:30PM PDT for an evening of astronomy as we discuss these questions and more at our next Astronomy on Tap. We'll host two ~15 minute talks, Q&A, and then follow it up with interactive, astronomical pub trivia. Bring a drink!

7:30 p.m. - First Galaxies

8:30 p.m. - Astro-themed Pub Trivia

About the Series

Astronomy on Tap is a nation-wide phenomenon where professional astronomers give informal science talks in local bars with accompanying pub trivia and interactions with the public. Scientists at Caltech organize the Los Angeles Chapter of Astronomy on Tap one Monday a month. Originally held at Der Wolfskopf bar in Old Town Pasadena, we have moved online to virtual events since March 2020.

Each event consists of two ~15-minute informal science talks given by researchers in astronomy, physics, and space science followed by Q&A. The second half of the night is devoted to astronomy-themed pub trivia with lots of interaction with the audience. For more information and recordings of past events, please see the Caltech Astro Outreach website and the Caltech Astro YouTube page.
