This event is all ages

The starry night sky has inspired us for millennia. More than sources of inspiration, stars also play an essential roles in shaping the Universe we call home. Stars tell their life stories through signals traversing vast distances in space and time. Over dinner and drinks, KITP Postdoctoral Scholar Benny Tsang will share how recent technologies transform astrophysicists into cosmic detectives, allowing them to decipher the secrets of how stars are born and how they end their lives in spectacular events.

Please note, seating is first-come, first-served. Dinner is required for table seating.

Café KITP is an evening event held at SOhO Restaurant (1221 State Street) every two months or so. It is a "physics café" which starts with a presentation by a speaker (a physicist) and is followed by questions and provocations facilitated by an interlocutor who inspires the audience to engage with the subject and the speaker. Food and drink are available and there is no cover charge.

Our motto: "Eat, THINK, and be merry!"
