Thinking Out Loud: Astronomy on Tap: Out of This World Books
In a series of short talks, scientists lead us on a literary tour of the stars.
- Megan Bedell, Center for Computational Astrophysics, Flatiron Institute
Exoplanets in Fact and Fiction
- James Hedberg, CUNY City College
Circles, Lines, and Revolutions: A Look at the Prominent Figures in Early Astronomy Texts
- Alex Teachey, Columbia University
Cosmic Perspective: The Works of Carl Sagan
Famed astrophysicist Carl Sagan once claimed, “A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic." Visiting scholars with Astronomy on Tap, the pop-science lecture series, back up his theory with presentations on topics ranging from literary representations of exoplanets to the presence of astronomy in Renaissance literature. Think of it as science class for English majors.
FIRST COME, FIRST SEATED
For free events, we generally overbook to ensure a full house. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, but registration does not guarantee admission. All registered seats are released shortly before start time, and seats may become available at that time. A standby line will form one hour before the program.
Please send all press inquiries (photo, video, interviews, audio-recording, etc.) at least 24-hours before the day of the program to Sara Beth Joren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
