Later this month will be a fairly rare public lecture by Professor Stephen Hawking, at Imperial College London.

17f6Unsurprisingly, this will be hugely popular, so places are being allocated by a ballot.

The lecture takes place on Monday 23rd November, and ballot tickets have to be reserved before 17th November.

Reserve a ticket here.

If your name comes out of the digital hat, then expect an email on the 18th confirming your place.

Agenda:

5pm: Tea – Meet Imperial’s theoretical physicists over tea for informal discussions about general relativity and beyond

6pm: Talks.

Welcome
Professor Jerome Gauntlett, Imperial College London

A Meditation on General Relativity 
Professor Fay Dowker, Imperial College London

Quantum Black Holes
Professor Stephen Hawking, University of Cambridge

In addition to Professor Hawking, the lecture will also include Professor of Theoretical Physics and Head of the Theoretical Physics Group at Imperial, Jerome Gauntlett and Professor of Theoretical Physics at Imperial, Fay Dowker.

And finally, as I noted 5 years ago at a previous public talk he gave…

Incidentally, if you ever get a chance to listen to him speak, sit to the left side of the hall. Otherwise you get a good view of the back of his computer screen. Not that it makes any difference at all, as it isn’t as if he was winking conspiratorially to the other side of the hall – but well, because, you just want to see HIM.
