Next week Stephen Hawking will be visiting Caltech to give his annual public lecture. One of the world’s most famous scientists, Hawking is the author of the bestselling A Brief History of Time and has been a leading researcher on everything from black holes to the nature of space. Although he usually works at Cambridge University, where he holds the Lucasian Professorship, he is also the Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Scholar at Caltech. It would be safe to bet he’s the biggest crowd pleaser the Division of Physics, Mathematics, & Astronomy ever brings to town. Due to the massive crowds he has drawn in the past, this year’s event will be held at the newly renovated Pasadena Convention Center, and we’re giving you plenty of notice so you can get tickets before they sell out. The Caltech website assures us that Dr. Hawking’s talk is meant for general audiences, so it shouldn’t fly over our heads. A must-see event.
Monday, March 9
Pasadena Convention Center, 300 E. Green St., Pasadena
Tickets are $10. They must be bought in person or on the phone — no online sales. Info here.
