Every month, we gather some smart speakers and a curious crowd, add a bar, and create something unique. This month, we’re going to join the Federation and smuggle asteroids!
Yes, you read that right! Our first speaker, astrophysicist Elizabeth Tasker, will talk about her adventures transporting asteroid grains returned to Earth by the Hayabusa2 space mission. Then, open-source technologist Christian Horn explains just what federated social network Mastodon is and why you should join.
Drinks (both alcoholic and non) will be available. Drink, meet, and be square-y! Kids are also welcome at Nerd Nite.
You can also find our event information on Facebook and Meetup; check the sidebar for all of our social media and mailing lists. Help us promote Nerd Nite by signing up on our event listings and sharing our social media posts!
