On 10th December, IEEE UK and Ireland Section was honoured to have Sir Roger Penrose deliver its 2018 annual Christmas Lecture.
Over 100 members gathered at the University of Westminster to hear introductions by Vice Chancellor, Peter Bonfield and Section Chair, Mike Hinchey before Sir Roger took to the stage.
His lecture was entitled “Are we seeing Hawking Points in the CMB Sky?” and gave a fascinating insight into his most recent work on the cosmic microwave background.
Sir Roger is known for his work in mathematical physics, in particular for his contributions to general relativity and cosmology. He has received several prizes and awards, including the 1988 Wolf Prize for physics, which he shared with Stephen Hawking for the Penrose–Hawking singularity theorems.
