Can galaxies influence their neighbors? How can research on honey bees help us learn about Mars? All the answers can be found at the Republic Bar and Café on the first night of Pint of Science in Hobart. Come on down, grab a pint, and learn about astronomy and microsensors from a CSIRO expert and a local University of Tasmania researcher.There will be trivia, there will be games!
To Mars and beyond
Professor Paulo de Souza (OCE Science Leader, Data61, CSIRO)
Our Planet and Mars have a common past. Eventually, they will share the same future. We will travel across time, getting an overview on how our knowledge on Mars was built and what to expect of the future exploration of the Red Planet.

The search for exoplanets: Cold worlds
Dr Andrew Cole (Associate Professor, University of Tasmania)
I will discuss the search for planets far enough away from their suns that liquid or frozen water can condense on their surface, and discoveries including free-floating planets and the first moons discovered in other solar systems.
