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!"

Black Holes: Classical and QuantumIsabel Garcia Garcia
Wednesday, February 20, 2019 - 6:00pm
When two black holes a billion light-years away collide and merge, the disruption they cause in spacetime is so large that we feel it here, on Earth. Black holes, classical and quantum, hold the key to some of the deepest mysteries of our Universe. Over dinner and drinks, KITP Postdoctoral Scholar Isabel Garcia Garciawill share some of what we have learned about black holes, and how they might help us in our journey towards finding the underlying theory of nature.
