You may be forgiven for thinking this sounds like the beginning of an episode of Big Bang Theory – but Dr. Stephen Hawking will lecture on “The Origin of the Universe” in CalTech’s Beckman Auditorium on Tuesday, April 16.
This event is free, with 500 seats in Beckman Auditorium available first-come, first-served. There will also be video feed to another campus auditorium, as well as on the lawn in front of Beckman Auditorium with a giant outdoor screen.
The talk begins at 8:00 p.m.
Ticket disbursement may be as early as 6:45 p.m. at the Western side of the Beckman Mall (nearest the Beckman Behaviorial Biology Building). Stand in the orange “Guests without Tickets” line.
Parking is free after 5:00 p.m., at which time you may park in any open space. There are two parking structures on Wilson Avenue, one on Holliston Avenue, and parking lots on Michigan Avenue.
No word about whether Dr. Sheldon Cooper will offer corrections from the audience.
