Since there are so many amazing events occurring this Thursday, and our official meeting is with SPS on Tuesday, we have postponed our game night. Instead, we encourage you to attend one, or all, of these events happening.
- The Astronomy Colloquium is at 3:00 pm on Thursday featuring Pauline Barmby from Western University. She’ll be talking about nearby galaxies and their X-ray binaries. Her talk will describe recent studies of X-ray binaries in several nearby galaxies and what they tell us about dynamical interactions, stellar populations, galactic structure, and the physical processes occurring in compact objects. The webpage for the talk is https://astronomy.osu.edu/events/astronomy-colloquium-pauline-barmby.
- Later, Astro Society has been invited to join the Interdisciplinary Resource for Innovative Students (IRIS) workshop at 6 pm that is looking at taking the idea of space tourism and working backward to determine the steps needed in order to make this vision become a reality. IRIS thought this could be a synergy opportunity between our clubs to combine our different skill sets towards this workshop put on by Dr. Staley, an OSU professor who teaches idealized design!
- The STEAM Factory here at OSU will be hosting a Scientist Guess-Who at 8 pm. Play along to figure out the function of miscellaneous pieces of research equipment, test your skills at Q&A in a 20-questions style guessing game, and try to figure out the research focus of our mystery guests. The program will be hosted by a student comedian from Buckeye Standup Comedy and the mystery guests will be graduate students from various STEM programs at Ohio State! Registration has not opened yet.
There will be an impromptu game night this weekend, you can be on the lookout for it on our GroupMe.
