My personal and professional adventure into Science

Stephen Hawking – ’Quantum Black Holes’

A few months ago I won a ticket through DTU Alumni to Stephen Hawking‘s Stephen Hawking public lecture – ’Quantum Black Holes’. So now I took and extra vacation day and flew to Stockholm to see his lecture. I know nothing about Quantum Black Holes, but it will be interesting to see Stephen Hawking live giving a lecture 🙂

Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds of the modern age and a cultural icon admired by millions worldwide, will present the public lecture “Quantum Black Holes” at the Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre. Carol L. Folt, chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will provide opening remarks.

Hawking has dedicated his career to studying the basic laws that govern the universe. With Roger Penrose, he showed that Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity implied space and time would begin with a singularity at the Big Bang and end in a singularity in the center of black holes.

I will stay overnight as his lecture is at 19.00 and then fly home tomorrow morning and go straight to work. There will be a lot of work waiting 🙂 In the meantime I found a hotel at an old castle, Ulfsunda Slott. Very nice and beautiful inside, they have really done an effort to preserve the old style and details. Very cool.

    so can we hope to escape from a blackhole??

    • Yes, that was one of the take-home-messages… Also, if you want to explore a black hole, then you should choose a big one, as the smaller ones would turn you into spaghetti before you even reached it, he said 😉
