Life as “Star Detective”

Wednesday, May 31, 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the FAC (Bar opens at 5 p.m.)

Coinciding with The Gift, an exhibition currently on view at the FAC, join us for our first Libation Lecture of 2023. The night sky is full of stories – stories of change, of life and death, and of possibility – carried out over millions or billions of years. How can we possibly understand these stories when our lives are but a fleeting blip in comparison?We will look at how stellar astrophysicists act as detectives, using the light from stars as clues to uncover the stories of the universe, and what is possible when we expand our ways of telling these stories through art-science collaborations.

Themed drink: Starry Night

Lecturer: Dr. Natalie Gosnell, Assistant Professor of Physics at Colorado College
