“Science Cafes” are, as the species/genus nomenclature suggests, science-minded talks given in an informal, fun, dining-out setting, fostered by the national science fraternity Sigma Xi. More of those and maybe this science stuff will catch on.
Cleveland’s Science Cafes have lately tended to orbit the multi-stage, multi-function Music Box Supper Club in the Flats. That’s where Stacy McGaugh, a CWRU astronomy professor, will discuss the expansion of the galaxies (glad to know something is expanding in this economy). And whether the mysterious “dark matter” proposed by physicists will be a factor in accelerating or even stopping the phenomenon.
Admission is free, with a menu of limited options from the Rusty Anchor Restaurant for those who want to expand their waistlines alongside the galaxies. Doors open at 5:30pm prior to the talk.
