Planets and Pints
UW Associate Professor of Astronomy Eric Agol will speak about "How to find an Earth-like planet" at tonight's Science on Tap meeting. Agol discovered a new planet in data from the Kepler telescope that failed this month after two of the telescope's four reaction wheels, which allow it to maintain its position in space, failed.
Science on Tap, Mon, August 26, 7pm, Ravenna Third Place Pub (in the basement of the Ravenna Third Place Bookstore), 6504 20th Ave. NE, Seattle, WA 98115, free.
