The community is invited to Nature on Tap to discuss the latest findings in astronomy 5:30-7 p.m., at UnQuarked in Central Park Square.
Local astronomers and astrophysicists Dr. Paul Arendt, Dr. Galen Gisler and Dr. Rick Wallace will provide an engaging discussion about black holes, NASA’s Juno probe, the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, the night sky, and upcoming planetarium shows.
Paul Arendt received his PhD in physics at Ohio State University and now works in commercial manufacturing and the Applied Research & Development of Materials department at LANL. Galen Gisler spent his life studying astrophysics around the world before furthering his career at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Rick Wallace, now a thirty-year member at LANL, attended U.C. Santa Cruz to study numerical calculations of stellar explosions and nuclear fusion.
Nature on Tap is part of a series of conversations about art, history, nature and science hosted by the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC), and is part of an informal discussion series started by the Los Alamos Creative District. At each Nature on Tap event, the topic is introduced by a facilitator before being opened up to the group for informal discussion.
