Discover our Universe with KIPAC Public Lectures

KIPAC Public Lectures

Have you ever wondered how the Universe works or how it began? Have you ever been curious about how many planets there are out there? Or what it would be like to fall into a black hole? 

We host monthly public lectures, followed by Q&A with astrophysicists, both in person at Stanford and live online. KIPAC Public Lectures are free and open to all, and are recommended for the general public and students above the 9th grade.

If you miss any of our events, or would like to watch them again, you can find all of our KIPAC Public Lectures on our YouTube channel
