Nerd Nite #59

Nerd Nite 59 Home Edition: Vol. 4 The days are heating up and the nights are getting longer, but nothing is longer than the wait for the next Nerd Nite. Coming to your computer on May 27, please join our eminent speakers! The Intense, Intricate, and Intriguing Lives of Ants by Ilan Domnich Did you think that people were the dominant animals on Earth? Think again! Ants are virtually everywhere and with many species comes a wide array of remarkable strategies for survival. Join us to learn about some ants with some truly unique abilities. Presentation is arachnophobe-friendly. Our Curvy View of Black Holes by Dr Sharon Morsink When light travels through a wine glass, it travels on a curvy path, giving a distorted view of objects behind it. Similarly, gravity causes light to travel on curved paths leading to a phenomenon called gravitational lensing. This effect allows us to view far away galaxies, the back sides of neutron stars, and the regions near black holes! In this talk we will look at recent images of stars and black holes and learn more about their properties. This talk will be best enjoyed along with stemmed glassware filled with a transparent beverage.
