Important Announcement - Our Talks are Going Virtual!

Inspite of the continuation of COVID-19, we didn't want to completely fall off of the face of the Earth! We realize many of you may be itching for more astronomy, so we are going to begin a virtual talk series in the mean time. Our team has been working hard to figure out the logistics of all of this, but we think we can continue to put together talks that you will enjoy, and hopefully by going virtual we can even reach people in a wider community.

So please keep an eye out for us on social media and check our schedule for upcoming talks. These will be posted to our YouTube channel, and while we certainly encourage you to attend the livestreamed event, the videos will continue to remain accessible afterwards for you to watch whenever is convenient!

Welcome to CoffeeShop Astrophysics!


These are a series of informal public lectures aimed at anyone interested in getting a taste of modern science, all from the comfort of your local coffee shop. Members of the Leonard E Parker Center for Gravitation, Cosmology and Astrophysics will guide you through the interesting, unusual, and sometimes bizarre concepts that guide the modern understanding of our universe. At the end of each lecture, we hope to have rekindled or ignited a passion for astrophysics!

Lectures will begin at 1 pm on the Saturdays specified in the schedule.

Please explore our website to find out more about CoffeeShop Astrophysics. Check our schedule for details about lecture topics, dates, the location of this lecture series, and who we are. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us! Looking forward to meeting and discussing science with you.
