Stephen Hawking Returns to Caltech—One Night Only

Noted theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and best-selling author Stephen W. Hawking has returned to speak at Caltech for the seventh time. His free lecture, "My Brief History," is intended for a general audience and will take place on Tuesday, January 18th, at 8 p.m., in Beckman Auditorium.

Hawking is the Director of Research in the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge. He did much of his seminal research on black holes during a yearlong visit to Caltech in 1974–75. Since 1992, Caltech has been Hawking's home away from home; he spends about a month each year here, carrying out research and exchanging ideas with Caltech faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate students.

For more information on the lecture and how to obtain tickets, visit Caltech Public Events or call (626) 395-4652.
