Astronomy on Tap Seattle

Astronomy on Tap: because science is better with beer!

Each FREE Astronomy on Tap event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Presenters are from local research and educational institutions. Most events have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably tag along for the beer.

Universe Sandbox² creator Dan Dixon joins us to answer the question "What If You Could Simulate the Universe?" by providing an introductory look at Universe Sandbox ², an accessible space simulator application that allows you to ask fantastical what-if questions and see accurate and realistic results in real-time. In addition, we get the latest news on the TRAPPIST-1 exoplanet system, which harbors seven Earth-sized planets, from UW professor in astronomy and astrobiology Dr. Rory Barnes, on "Habitability of Planets in Complicated Systems."
