Astronomy on Tap Triangle: Stars Slung-Shot From the Galaxy
Tuesday, December 4th, 2018
7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Join us for another Astronomy on Tap Triangle, our North Carolina chapter of short, engaging talks about astronomy over beer held at the taproom of Fullsteam Brewery in Durham, NC — this our eleventh event on Tuesday, December 4!
Join us for our last event this fall semester to hear about some exciting new results on a class of stars that are very literally out of this world — and heading out of our Galaxy! First up, Dr. Brad Barlow, Assistant Professor of Astrophysics at High Point University, will tell us about runaway stars that are escaping the Milky Way. Then Dr. JJ Hermes, Hubble Fellow at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who has emceed the first 10 Astronomy on Tap Triangle events at Fullsteam, will tell us more about how we find new stars, and how an exploding star is one unique way to sling-shot stars out of our Galaxy.
