World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking delivered a lecture at Bovard Auditorium on Tuesday March 10th entitled, "Out of a Black Hole." Dr. Hawking questions the vacuousness of black holes, describing how things can get out of a black hole to the outside and possibly on to another universe.

Dr. Hawking is a theoretical physicist & the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge. He is also author of the best-selling "A Brief History of Time," (1988), which describes black holes, the big bang & superstring theory.
