Over 400 People Attend Launch of “Astronomy on Tap”

Written on |

The School of Physics and Astronomy inaugurated a new public outreach activity – short astronomy-related presentations at a bar.

The first event was held at the Kanta Bar in Tel Aviv on Tuesday, April 2, 2019. PhD student Meir Zeilig-Hess spoke about his research on supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies, and Master’s student Natalie Lubelchick talked about her research in deciphering the explosions of stars. New faculty member, Dr. Iair Arcavi, and PhD student Dalya Baron hosted the event and reviewed the month’s “astronomy in the news”. Astronomical prizes were given to attendees who sent questions to the speakers during the event.

Astronomy on Tap is expected to take place roughly once a month in the same format. The events are free and open to the public. Updates will be provided through the Astronomy on Tap mailing list and Facebook page (in Hebrew). Links to photos and videos of each event will be posted to the website. For further information, please contact the organizer of the event, Dr. Iair Arcavi.
