Harvard's Science in the News organization brings their successful "Science by the Pint" event to Aeronaut Brewery for a special night. We hope you can join us to check out this great new addition to the Somerville community and hear about some awesome research going on down the street!
MIT Professor Scott Hughes and his group from the Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research will be settling in at Aeronaut Brewing Company to discuss the phenomenon of gravitational waves, how they arise from the movements of supermassive objects, and the great lengths at which physicists go to detect them. Come grab a seat and a beer, and if you’re lucky, someone will explain the plot of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar to you.
Organized in collaboration with the Cambridge Science Festival. For more details, visit sitn.hms.harvard.edu/science-by-the-pint and visit the Facebook link to reserve a free ticket at the taproom.
