OMSI Science Pub


5 p.m. doors, 7 p.m. presentation

$5 suggested donation; $5 advance purchase for guaranteed seats

All ages welcome

Presented by: Andrew Greenberg, adjunct faculty in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Portland State University.



It's not every day you get to artisanally hand-craft a nanosatellite! That's exactly what we're doing for OreSat, Oregon's first satellite. OreSat is being built at Portland State University as a collaboration of Oregon universities and community colleges by a team of students, makers, and citizen scientists.

Join us for a big evening on extremely small satellites as we explore getting to space, orbits, the space environment, nanosatellites, and CubeSats. We'll discuss OreSat's mission to bring an innovative space-based Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) educational project to all Oregon high schools, and our mission to study the global coverage of "invisible" high-altitude Cirrus clouds. We'll wrap up with the technical details of how OreSat works, and how we don't end up become space junk. And in a true DIY spirit, we'll end with talking about how you might be able to get involved in hand-crafting Oregon's first satellite!

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
