Science by the Pint

Our schedule through summer is here!
We have two events in April! In addition to our usual Science by the Pint on April 13th, we have
Science by the Pint @ Aeronaut: Gravitational Waves
Aeronaut Brewing Company, 14 Tyler St, Somerville, MA 02143
Wednesday, April 8th at 7pm
Register here on Eventbrite for free

MIT Professor Scott Hughes and his group from the Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research will be settling in to discuss the phenomenon of gravitational waves, how they arise from the movements of supermassive objects, and the great lengths to which physicists go to detect them. Come grab a seat, and if you’re lucky, someone will explain the plot of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar to you.

Our second Science by the Pint in April:

Mark Vogelsberger

Cosmic Origins: The science of simulating a universe in a computer

Meet us April 13th at 7pm at The Burren in Davis Square!

MIT Professor Mark Vogelsberger and his group will be settling in to discuss the science behind simulating a universe in a computer. Using a combination of ever more sophisticated observations, theoretical models, and powerful supercomputer simulations to achieve a better understanding of how galaxies and structure in the Universe formed, cosmology and galaxy formation have only recently entered their golden age with an enormous amount of observational data being available.
