To celebrate Caltech's 100th Stargazing Lecture, Nobel laureate Kip Thorne, Caltech's Richard P. Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics, Emeritus, will present a public-level science talk entitled "An Odyssey Through the Warped Side of the Universe" at Beckman Auditorium. After the talk, a panel including Thorne and other astronomers will answer questions while volunteers guide stargazing with telescopes on Beckman Mall. Free and open to the public; registration and information links to come. 8:00–8:45 p.m. - Public Lecture 8:45–9:45 p.m. - Panel Q&A and Guided Stargazing In the sixty-odd years of my career in astrophysics, you have come to understand that the universe has a very rich warped side. "By this, we mean objects and phenomena made from warped spacetime instead of from matter. In this lecture, I will describe some of what we have learned. For example: weird facets of black holes that you may not have not heard of before. And also likely new to you: Voracious, "vacuum fluctuations" - tiny bits of everything that ever could inhabit our universe, flashing in and out of existence, randomly. These fluctuations suck energy from rapidly distorting spacetime and use it to convert themselves into real, material stuff". Stargazing is dependent on clear weather, but lecture and Q&A happen regardless. Event will occur in-person, with lecture and Q&A additionally live-streamed on YouTube.
