Building 10, 250
222 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02139

Join Professor Richard P Binzel from 3:30-4:30pm in 10-250 for his lecture - From Stonehenge to MIThenge: Revealing Our Place in the Universe Through Cosmic Alignments

Friday November 10 and Saturday November 11 are two days of the year, when the cosmos and MIT align such that the setting sun shines straight down the third floor of the Infinite Corridor. We'll examine what factors create this curious local alignment, but more importantly, explore how cosmic alignments are essential tools for understanding our place in the Universe.

The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Bush Room (10-105) from 4:30-5:30pm. 

This lecture and reception are open to all community members and the public.
