7:30 pm

We’ve long known that beer and conversation go together.

We hope you’ll join us for Science on Tap, a monthly science cafe organized by the KU Natural History Museum and hosted here at the Free State Brewery.

Here’s how it works:  A moderator introduces a science or technology topic.  After a short break for food or drink, the moderator encourages the crowd to ask questions about the subject and interact. Come early for dinner, eat and drink during the event, or join us just for the conversation. The program will begin at 7:30.

The Evolution of Galaxies
Moderator: Greg Rudnick, KU professor of Physics and Astronomy


How do astronomers study galaxies billions of light years away and billions of years in the past? Greg Rudnick will take us to a galaxy far, far away -- or a few of them -- for a talk about what a galaxy is, how scientists observe them, and how we can indirectly study their evolution, even though the scale of time is far beyond a human lifetime. Bring your curiosity and your questions!
