A chance to see Stephen Hawking in Tempe?!!!!

NOT a PAS event but enjoy!

Info on the Origins Symposium can be found here Tickets go on sale March 4 for ASU students and March 6 for us general public folk. No clue on prices, etc. but it's:
"April 3-6, 2009 The Origins Symposium will inaugurate the new Origins Initiative at ASU. We will assemble in one place a group containing the most well known scientific public intellectuals in the world including Stephen Hawking, Steven Pinker, Richard Dawkins, Craig Venter, Lawrence Krauss, Brian Greene and Donald C. Johanson" (and many many more other really great astronomy speakers)
But...there's more! This Wed.(3.4.9)7:30 $ Jay Melosh is giving the annual Shoemaker Memorial Lecture at ASU--and they'll have a drawing for 10 sets of Symposium tickets. And not that Jay Melosh is chopped liver! He's given amazing talks to the astro clubs in the past--well worth the trip.

Hope to see you there!
