To celebrate last year’s Asteroid Day, several organizations came together to host an open event for the University of Groningen students, scientists and the general public at Cafe the Crown in Groningen, Netherlands.
The theme of the event was science, art and fun facts about asteroids. Composed of two parts, astronomer Nick Oberg gave an illustrated lecture titled “The Living Cosmos”. The event was followed by an interactive pub quiz where teams of up to 5 people played for free tickets to a show at their local planetarium!
Thanks to Pint of Science Netherlands, Asteroid Day Groningen, the Astronomy Tap Groningen, and the University of Groningen and Kateryna Frantseva for hosting this educational event.
