Stephen Hawking @ ASU

Not really a post about Old School Gaming, but I have to post it anyway.

I got the chance to hear a lecture by Stephen Hawking last night at ASU. It was short, but very cool. My friends and I stood in the rain afterward discussing it, that's how cool it was.

The ASU Symphony Orchestra also played Gustav Holst's "The Planets" in sync with NASA imagery. Awesome.

The clip isn't groundbreaking, but I post it as evidence that I was there! :)

Very cool, what a great opportunity! I'm jealous.

That Holst work is forever burned into my mind via Ambrosia's old EV Nova game where it served as the background/opening theme. Good times.
