Café KITP is an evening event held at SOhO Restaurant (1221 State Street) every two months or so. It is a "physics café" which starts with a presentation by a speaker (a physicist) and is followed by questions and provocations facilitated by an interlocutor who inspires the audience to engage with the subject and the speaker. Food and drink are available and there is no cover charge.Our motto: "Eat, THINK, and be merry!"

Stars don’t just orbit each other — sometimes they collide! In fact, some of the most exciting events in the universe occur when two stars get close enough to merge. Come collide with visiting KITP astrophysicist Josiah Schwab as he gives us a tour of the many kinds of stellar mergers and the varied ways in which astronomers and astrophysicists observe them. Our motto: Eat, think, and be merry!
