Yesterday my roommate and I went to the lecture of Stephen Hawking in Leuven. The auditorium would be open from 8pm, but by that time the auditorium was already overcrowded. A consequence of the unfortunate combination of the kindness of giving as much people as possible the chance to be part of such a special event and not having a great organisation talent.
The lecture itself was clear and easy to follow. The level was a bit less than I hoped but it was a public lecture so it had to remain interesting for everyone.
After the lecture we went to the youth hostel where we stayed for the night. In the bar we talked with some other people about our point of view and about some other things related to nuclear physics and technology. I really loved that part of the evening. It is really interesting to exchange thoughts with people who have another point of view.
Eventually, but too late, I went to bed and after a too short night I went back home cause no matter how what a wonderful evening I had yesterday, today was an ordinary school day.
Here is the link to the lecture of Stephen Hawking on the beginning of the universe.
