Nerd Nite Tokyo #54: United Federation of Planetoids

8:00pm – 10:00pm
¥1,000 (on the door)

Do you like TED Talks? Do you want to listen to an intellectual discussion with a glass of wine or a pint of beer? Then head to Nerd Nite Tokyo for your monthly dose of wisdom — and fun!

A message from Nerd Nite Tokyo:

Every month, we gather some smart speakers and a curious crowd, add a bar, and create something unique.

This month, we’re going to join the Federation and smuggle asteroids!

Yes, you read that right! Our first speaker, astrophysicist Elizabeth Tasker, will talk about her adventures transporting asteroid grains returned to Earth by the Hayabasa2 space mission. Then, open-source technologist Christian Horn explains just what federated social network Mastodon is and why you should join.

Drinks (both alcoholic and non) will be available. Drink, meet, and be square-y! Kids are also welcome at Nerd Nite.


  • Elizabeth Tasker — Asteroid smuggling for beginners
  • Christian Horn — Mastodon: join the Federation!
