Hey Nerdfriends:

Due to the current situation with COVID19, we will be live-streaming our events until the North Door reopens. It is a difficult time for everyone, particularly for our friends at the North Door and Pueblo Viejo. The ND has been a family to us here at Nerd Nite Austin, and our hearts go out to the staff, who have been impacted by this time of uncertainty. We are extremely grateful for everything they have done for us over the years. We look forward to being back with them soon.

If you have ever enjoyed a Nerd Nite presentation, then please know it is in no small part due to the kindness, professionalism, and generosity of the North Door. HOW YOU CAN HELP:  Venmo what you can to @thenorthdoor. Please consider donating possibly what you would have given as a tip or for a delicious beverage or taco? Anything will help during this time.

Thank You,

The Nerd Nite Austin Bosses

We put on a FREE show every month on the second Wednesday of the month.

The show starts at 8:00 PM.

Our regular monthly show happens at The North Door. Pueblo Viejo makes us tacos there.

It’s a pretty cool set-up. Be there and be square.

Nerd Nite presents a special live-stream edition! As we’re good citizens practicing social distancing, we want to provide our community with the monthly talks you love in the comfort and safety of your own spaces.

This is a very difficult time for a great many people, including our amazing friends at the North Door. The North Door has provided us a home for years, and we could simply not do our shows without them. HOW YOU CAN HELP: Please donate to the North Door and its staff via Venmo: @thenorthdoor, or https://venmo.com/thenorthdoor. Every little bit helps. How about give what you would for a delicious beverage or taco and a tip to help their staff?

Please join us virtually on our twitch channel and view this month’s talks!

** We will be taking questions from the audience via our Twitch live-stream chat channel! You will need a Twitch account to ask questions, but not to watch! **

“Glaciers Around the Solar System” by Sophie Goliber

Glaciers are an important part of the Earth’s cryosphere, but ice is present all over the solar system! From Mars to Pluto, we will look at some incredible images of ice and talk about why we should care about glaciers on Earth and elsewhere.

Take a trip looking at glaciers and ice from Earth to Pluto to see how unique, beautiful, and significant this substance is in our Solar System.

“The Sound of Space-Time” by M. J. B. Rosell

We tend to think about space as the emptiness in with think exist. But space moves, shrinks, contracts and expands, AND WE HAVE MEASURED IT.

Peruvian. Former sociologist turned physicist, migrated to USA to get paid to think about space and time.

As always, Nerd Nite is free. If you want to, you can RSVP to our Facebook event, or just tune in!

Grab a (virtual) drink – but more importantly – tip your bartenders (HERE) , and relax!

Until we are back at the North Door, we will not have ASL interpreters and our awesome librarian friends from the Austin Public Library , but we are looking forward to seeing them again very soon!
