Have you ever looked up at the night sky and thought, ” I wonder what’s going on up there?” The universe is so vast, beautiful, and also mysterious. Yet the answers to it’s many mysterious can be found, if you know where to look. The Philadelphia Science Society and their Science Seekers will be hosting a meetup about the many changes happening in the universe. On August 15 join the Science Seekers at World Café Live for Watching the Hidden Evolution of Galaxies from 5:30-7:30 p.m. This is a free meetup at World Café Live but you can RSVP on the events Meetup Page.
Watching the Hidden Evolution of Galaxies will be lead by Dr. James Aguirre; associate professor in the Department of Physics & Astronomy, School of Arts & Sciences. Dr. Aguirre will discuss the long process it takes for galaxies to expand. This process of evolution is measured by the speed of light, infrared and radio wavelengths. The evolution of galaxies can be seen using 3D snapshots. Dr. Aguirre will talk about his work on new instruments to view this heretofore invisible process and how it is linked to the larger evolution of the universe.
If you are attending this meetup please try to arrive early to insure a seat. The group usually takes the tables close to the presentation screens; you will see meetup signs on the tables. Another benefit for arriving early is to catch the Cafe’s happy hour, which ends at 6:30 p.m. If you arrive late please try to sit close to the group at another nearby table or you can stand. Guests can also order drinks, appetizers, and dinner at the café.
