If you live in the Phoenix area, an amazing event is happening at Arizona State University on April 6th. As part of ASU's "origins initiative," a symposium is being held with some of the biggest names in science (you name the field!) in attendance. The culmination is a talk by Stephen Hawking held in Gammage auditorium. Tickets are half price for anyone with an ASU ID and tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday. Hawking's opening act is a magician named Jason Latimer who was a graduate student in optics (among other things) at UC Santa Barbara. He's well-known for his take on the classic cups and balls illusion.
