Although we’ve yet to find life beyond Earth, we continue to search for it every single day. But, what exactly are we searching for? And since the Universe is so big, where should we look first? Come find out in this presentation by Jaclyn Avidon, former Board member of the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York and NASA Fellow. Skygazing on the rooftop at 8pm. Feel free to bring your own telescopes or binoculars. Free.

The Serious Business of Online Satire, Columbia Journalism School – UWS, 6pm – 7pm

What does original, insightful satire look like in a political moment that seems to render parody impossible? In what ways does the fast pace of the internet (and the centralizing force of large social media platforms) shape online humor? Join a timely conversation on the business of online satire featuring Sarah Pappalardo and Beth Newell, the founders of the feminist satire website Reductress, and Emma Allen, the editor of Daily Shouts on newyorker.com. Moderated by New York Magazine’s Gabriella Paiella. Free. RSVP by sending an email to towcenter@columbia.edu .
