Stephen Hawking Lecture at Caltech

Last night, I went to a lecture by Stephen Hawking at Caltech. The lecture was scheduled to start at 8pm, and I arrived at around 6:30. The line was already enormous: people near me in the line estimated that the line contained over 1,000 people. The auditorium filled long before I made it to the entrance, so I ended up watching the lecture from outside the auditorium, on flat-screen monitors. The talk itself was lively, and I am very happy I went.
