2010 Honoree Dr. Stephen Hawking

Please join us to honor physicist Stephen Hawking at the very special event, Exploring the Cosmos, on February 27, 2010 in Cambridge, England.

The Planetary Society will present the Cosmos Award for Outstanding Public Presentation of Science to Dr. Hawking, author of "A Brief History of Time" and host of the television series "Stephen Hawking's Universe." Through his books, television series and public lectures, Dr. Hawking has engaged the public for over 20 years in some of the most profound questions of our existence – from the origins of the universe to the nature of black holes.

Carl Sagan's landmark television series, "Cosmos," fueled the imaginations of millions of viewers around the world. To honor other innovators who present science in an entertaining and enthralling way, the Society created the Cosmos Award.

Along with Dr. Hawking, Exploring the Cosmos will feature Planetary Society Board Members Bill Nye the Science Guy, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jim Bell and Louis Friedman.

EVENT: 15.30 - 17.15 hrs
RECEPTION: 17.30 - 18.30 hrs
PLACE: Wolfson Room (Meeting Room 2)
