Named for the late Earnest C. Watson, who founded the series in 1922, these lectures feature speakers from Caltech and JPL, speaking on their cutting-edge research. No tickets or reservations are required. Through a gift from the estate of Richard C. Biedebach, the Watson Lecture Series has expanded to nine lectures annually. Many past Watson Lectures are available for viewing online on Caltech's iTunes U site.
