This Thursday’s brews are out of this world
Astronomy lovers, don’t miss this week’s Astronomy on Tap—it’s the last show of the summer. Head over to the Varsity Theatre Thursday, Aug. 8, at 6 p.m. for a night of science, beer and space-themed drinks. This Thursday’s speakers are LSU graduate students Karunya Shirali and Alex Igl, discussing exotic matter and ancient civilizations’ astronomy studies. And like usual, there will be games, raffles and free cover. So cheers to proving that science is, indeed, better with beer.
