think + drink (science)

On the second Wednesday of each month, from 7 to 9 p.m., we transform the Bishop Planetarium into a forum for discussions at think + drink (science), a place where you can grab a beer or a glass of wine (or a soft drink) and learn about cutting-edge science in a relaxed, informal setting. Typically our "expert du jour" gives a short presentation on the topic of the month, and then opens the floor for questions and discussion. Drinks and bar snacks available for purchase. Feel free to bring food.

Archaeology in Fiction with Dr. Scott Viguie

Popular fiction is filled with images of archaeologists as daring adventurers who risk life and limb in the pursuit of fabulous antiquities of historical and monetary value. That's the view many people have of archaeology. What is the truth, though, behind the myth and why have the myths persisted for so long? Join Dr. Scott Viguie, archaeologists and attorney, to explore the real life adventures of archaeology. Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction.

think + drink (science) is $2 for members, $4 for non-members.

Is There Anybody Out There? The Continuing Search for Extraterrestrial Life 

with Jeff Rodgers

Five years ago, Jeff presented the very first think+drink (science) program. The topic? The search for E.T. Half a decade later, extraterrestrial life still hasn't been found. But we have made remarkable strides in the discovery of planets around other stars and refined our ability to detect the chemical signatures of life. We'll talk about why Jeff thinks life should be plentiful, how we can best go about searching for it, and why actually finding it might be tougher than we thought.
