Sound of Science Meeting #2

Dupa succesul primei intalniri, ne-am decis sa organizam cate una in fiecare luna, dar cu o anumita tematica. Asadar, sambata, 19 decembrie, va invitam de la ora 15:00 la pubul Have a Cigar de pe str. Dianei 11, langa Piata Rosetti, la o dupa-amiaza si seara relaxante.

Provocarea intalnirii:
– Doritorii sunt rugati sa vina cu laptopuri
– In avans, ori la fata locului, vom instala Kerbal Space Program pe ele
– Misiuni diverse precum: lansarea unei navete si plasarea ei pe orbita Terrei, lansarea si plasarea pe orbita a unui satelit artificial si/sau aselenizarea unui modul lunar, dupa demonstratiile realizate de noi inainte proiectate pe peretele barului.
– Castigatorii primesc un cocktail Sound of Science si, probabil, o carte SF.

Recomandam exersari aprige inaintea evenimentului, iar in scopul acesta va vom indica locul din care sa va puteti descarca jocul acesta, care este mai mult o simulare a pricipiilor fizice dupa care functioneaza zborul spatial. Nu necesita cunostinte stiintifice ci doar exercitiu si doze uriase de amuzament.

Ne vedem acolo? :)

After the success of the first meeting, we’ve decided to organize one every month, but with a theme. So, Saturday, 19th of December, starting from 3:00 PM, at Have a Cigar, we invite you to have some fun and a good Cocktail.

The Challenge of this meeting:

– Those who want to participate are asked to bring their laptops
– You are asked to install Kerbal Space Program, or if you do not posses the knowledge to do so we will do it for you.
– There will be different missions such as launching a spaceship on earth’s orbit, or placing an artificial satellite in orbit and even landing on the moon, using a Lunar Module. We will demonstrate each one on a projector.
– The winner receives a Sound of Science Cocktail and , maybe, a SF book.

We recommend intense training before entering the simulator. This Sim. can be downloaded for free and is a simulation of physical principles of space flight. It doesn’t require scientific knowledge, only practice and huge doses of fun.

See you there…? :)
