Thursday Science On Tap: Space Weather

on June 14, 2017 - 6:35pm

CREATIVE DISTRICT News:

Space is not a dark, cold void as many people think. Instead, it churns with energy—in the form of accelerated particles—that come to us through the sun’s activity. The resulting sunspots and solar storms can disrupt communications, compromise power grids, and even influence your day-to-day life on Earth.

Come to Science On Tap at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 15 at UnQuarked Wine Room, 145 Central Park Square, where Geoff Reeves, with the Lab’s Space Science & Applications group, will talk about his research on just how space weather impacts our planet and the discoveries still to be made.

Science On Tap happens every third Thursday of the month, featuring a new topic each time.

Science On Tap is sponsored by the Los Alamos Creative District and hosted by the Bradbury Science Museum. The On Tap series begins each evening with an informal 10-15 minute lecture followed by a lively group discussion. All ages are welcome! On Tap is a way for people to get out and about in the community, learn something new, and meet people with similar interests. The “On Tap” series happens twice a month. The discussions are supported by Bradbury Science Museum, Fuller Lodge Art Center, Los Alamos Historical Society and PEEC at The Nature Center.

The Los Alamos Creative District is a program of Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation, a private, not-for-profit economic and community development organization serving the Los Alamos area since 1983. LACDC serves as the umbrella organization for the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce, Los Alamos MainStreet, the Los Alamos Meeting & Visitors Bureau, Los Alamos Small Business Center, project Y Cowork Los Alamos and the Los Alamos Research Park.
