Tonight’s live-streamed show is postponed. Caveat and the Versus team agree that a fun and distracting show is not the best way to serve our community right now.
Thank you so much for purchasing a ticket - due to the precarious financial situation Caveat is in due to COVID-19 closings, we request that, if possible, you do not request a refund, and we will happily honor your ticket purchase for any future Caveat livestream (including future Versus livestreams). Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org when you’d like to use your ticket credit. If you decide to request a ticket refund at this time, we will of course honor that.
VERSUS is back for another round – this time, with the Science Events Summit!
Your hosts Meg Pierson, Zak Martellucci, and Dustin Growick lead a rotating cast of special guest experts in a battle royale of serious—and not so serious—topics. Who will come out on top? Dinosaurs or mammals? Biology or physics? Space or oceans? Chock-full of trivia, games, and prizes, the show will conclude with the answer to an age-old question. The winner is up to you, as audience endorsements and YOUR vote will ultimately determine which team is crowned champion of VERSUS.
THIS MONTH: Stars vs. Black Holes
Repping Stars: Sarafina Nance (@starstrickenSF) is a Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley studying astrophysics. She studies supernovae from both an observational and theoretical perspective. When not doing astrophysics, she focuses her efforts on advocating for women's health – Sarafina recently had a preventative double mastectomy and reconstruction. She is passionate about communicating science, whether it be about breast cancer or exploding stars.
Repping Black Holes: Katie Mack (@AstroKatie) is a theoretical astrophysicist who studies a range of questions in cosmology, the study of the universe from beginning to end. She currently holds the position of Assistant Professor of Physics at North Carolina State University, where she is also a member of the Leadership in Public Science Cluster. Throughout her career she has studied dark matter, the early universe, galaxy formation, black holes, cosmic strings, and the ultimate fate of the cosmos. Alongside her academic research, she is an active science communicator and has been published in a number of popular publications such as Scientific American, Slate, Sky & Telescope, Time.com, and Cosmos Magazine, where she is a columnist.
– This event is part of the Science Events Summit, and the hosts and experts will stick around after the show for a chat with attendees on science communication, events production, and any other questions you might have!
