Astronomy on Tap in Kingston is back and in person!!

This free event is on the top floor of Kingston Brewing Company on November 30th at 6:30 pm.

Astronomy on Tap is a series of worldwide events in which professional astronomers give informal talks at a local bar on topics of a broad interest in astronomy and astrophysics. This particular event will be a bit different than in the past – we will host two fantastic astronomers/astroparticle physicists: Mark Richardson and Steve Sekula who will go head-to-head in a debate over theory vs experiment. The event will be hosted by local astro-buff, Nik AroraThere will be time for questions and discussion, and the speakers and other local scientists will mingle with the audience between and after the talks, providing lots of opportunities to chat with some keen astronomers. There will also be a trivia session with questions related to astronomy with prizes given out to the winners!
The event is free and open to all ages.
The Kingston Brewing Company serves alcohol and non-alcoholic drinks. A selection of food will be pre-purchased and provided to guests for free, but we do recommend having something to eat before the event, as additional food cannot by guests at the event.
Astronomy on Tap will be upstairs as you come inside.
Space is limited, so we encourage you to arrive on time!
