THIS MONTH we will be joined by Dr. Meredith Rawls*, who will speak about her research on «Weighing Stars with Starquakes» with a fantastic technique called asteroseismology. We'll also hear from our venerable co-host Trevor Dorn-Wallenstein* on «An Unbeerlievable Tale»: how atoms come together in stars to make the most glorious structure in the low-redshift Universe: beer.

Please note that this event will begin at *8pm*, since the sun will set late!

This month we are excited to again be hosted by Peddler Brewing Company in their large beer garden. Bring lawn chairs if you’d like to to make your own front-row seating! There will be a food truck at the event, but outside food is also welcome.

Each FREE Astronomy on Tap event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Most events have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get updates on future events!

Speaker Bios
— — Speaker 1: Meredith Rawls
Title: Weighing Stars with Starquakes

Meredith Rawls is a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Washington. She writes software to prepare for the coming onslaught of data from the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope and studies weird binary stars. She holds degrees in physics and astronomy from Harvey Mudd College, San Diego State University, and New Mexico State University. When she's not science-ing or telling people all about it, she plays viola, volunteers at summer camp, and advocates for more equity and less light pollution. She really hopes you go see the solar eclipse with a plan to arrive in the path of totality at least one day ahead of time.

Speaker 2: Trevor Dorn-Wallenstein
Title: An Unbeerlievable Tale

Trevor Dorn-Wallenstein is a second-year graduate student in the University of Washington Astronomy department. When he isn’t thinking about beer, Trevor thinks about how massive stars live, evolve, and die, and the spectacular things they do in the process. Recently, Trevor has begun helping to organize Astronomy on Tap SEA, thus merging his love for beer and excitement about astronomy. If he isn’t doing astronomy, he’s probably baking cookies, eating fire, or playing drums in Night Lunch.
