Stargazing Lecture

Quantum Technologies: From Fundamental Physics to Deep Space Communications
Maria Spiropulu, Shang-Yi Ch'en Professor, Department of Physics, Caltech,

Because this is an online event, the in-person stargazing that normally follows events in this series will not be possible.

Join the YouTube Livestream here:

7:00–7:30 p.m. - Virtual Lecture
7:30–9:00 p.m. - Virtual Panel Q&A and Discussion

I will discuss the progress in the quantum science and technology frontier and the opportunities across all sciences including physics, astronomy and society at large.

About the Series

Stargazing Lectures are free lectures at a public level followed by a Q&A panel and guided stargazing with telescopes (weather permitting). All events are held at the Cahill Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics at Caltech. No reservations are needed. Lectures are 30 minutes; stargazing and panel Q&A last 90 minutes. Stay only as long as you want.

Stargazing is only possible with clear skies, but the lecture and panel Q&A takes place regardless of weather.
