Rewiring the System

Institute for Science, Engineering, and Public Policy

Institute for Science, Engineering, and Public Policy  is stepping out. A riveting evening will be had by all those fortunate enough to attend, right here in our back yard.     Not one but two important members of the Astro Physicist community as well as sparks from those feisty Particles, too!

Dr. Stephen Hawking and Dr. Kip Thorne has agreed to be presenting a program on BLACK HOLES

They are coming to our community and have agreed to speak on the same stage   Stephen Hawking is coming to Cupertino, Calif. for a one-night engagement to present his newest discussion, “Out of a Black Hole”.

Terry Bristol,( the President and Executive Director of the Institute for Science, Engineering and Public Policy (ISEPP)),

Created a space and time for this Important topic now that Earth is experiencing climate change and businesses are planning to build communities on other planets in out solar system. The Moon is being hitched by China and Mars seems to be the Apple of the combined English Speaking peoples.

Dr. Stephen Hawking and Dr. Kip Thorne has agreed to be presenting a program on
on Tuesday June 19 at 8pm at
the Flint Center in Cupertino CA.  The organizers of the event have offer a 20% discount on tickets for Long Now members.

Born in Logan Utah in 1940, Kip Thorne received his B.S. degree from Caltech in 1962 and his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1965. After two years of postdoctoral study, Thorne returned to Caltech as an Associate professor in 1967, was promoted to Professor of Theoretical Physics in 1970, became The William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor in 1981, and The Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics in 1991.

In June 2009 Thorne resigned his Feyman Professorship (becoming the Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics, Emeritus) in order to ramp up a new career in writing, movies, and continued scientific research. His principal current writing project is a textbook on classical physics. His principal current movie project is Interstellar, for which he co-authored the story and is executive producer, and Steven Spielberg is the Director.  He is a co-founder (with Weiss and Drever) of the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory).

the Flint Center in Cupertino, California

on June 19th at 8pm.

Get Tickets on sale for the event through Ticketmaster . Seats in all sections are available while supplies last and range in price from $35 to $95 per seat.

Stephen Hawking is the Lucasian Professor at Cambridge University, a professorship once held by Sir Isaac Newton. For the past 45 years, he has been a world leader in research on black holes, the birth of the universe, and the nature of space, time, and gravity. During his presentation at the Flint Center on June 19th, Dr. Hawking will explain that black holes aren’t as black as they are painted. Things can get out of a black hole to the outside and, possibly, on to another universe.

The Institute for Science, Engineering and Public Policy is a public, non-profit corporation dedicated to the development of local understanding of issues concerning science, technology and society (STS). The Institute works to improve popular appreciation of the role of public policy in actualizing the benefits of technological advances to humanity.
