Stephen Hawking Lecture Sold Out; Overflow Seating Limited
COLLEGE STATION —
Overflow seating is all that remains for world-famous University of Cambridge physicist Stephen Hawking’s public lecture, “The Origin of the Universe,” scheduled for Sunday, April 3, at 6 p.m. at Texas A&M University.
Less than a week after tickets went on sale, all 2,500 seats in Rudder Auditorium have been claimed, as was the case for his previous two appearances in Aggieland in 2007 and 2010. As a result, Memorial Student Center Box Office officials now have opened up sales for two overflow rooms, the Stephen W. Hawking Auditorium within the George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy and the George P. Mitchell ’40 Physics Building Lecture Hall, each of which will feature a live video feed simulcast from Rudder Auditorium.
Box Office officials report that less than 80 seats currently remain in the Hawking Auditorium. In the event it sells out, they plan to make the 468 seats in the lecture hall available. They advise anyone interested in these remaining seats, priced at $5 each, to act quickly by calling (979) 845-1234 or, toll-free, (888) 890-5667 or ordering online through the Box Office.
Officials note that Friday is the final day for all ticket sales, regardless of whether or not any overflow seats remain at that time.
For additional information, contact the Mitchell Institute at (979) 845-7778 or click here.
