“There are lots of ‘mirror Earths,’ but like the midway at the State Fair, the view depends on the mirror you are using.” That’s from Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics professor Chick Woodward, who will be at Café Scientifique at the Bryant Lake Bowl tonight discussing exoplanets and the possibility of humans inhabiting other planets throughout the universe. Super fun. And as always, when you’re in the cabaret at the BLB, you can grab a beer whilst you learn. 7 PM. $5-12 Sliding Scale. —Curt Stanski
