Charles Simonyi discusses his second trip
to the International Space Station

CSE's 2009 Distinguished Lecturer Series drew packed audiences and covered an eclectic array of topics that stretched from high-earth orbiting and high-tech cooking to wireless technologies and futuristic interfaces.

First up, Charles Simonyi recounted his second trip, in March 2009, to the International Space Station, with photos and video of the Russian Soyuz spacecraft. Next, Nathan Myhrvold took us on a tour of the science of the kitchen. Qualcomm founder Irvin Jacobs talked about the past and future of cellphone technology. Craig Mundie talked on Rethinking Computing— how emerging technology will help solve critical societal problems. Pat Hanrahan talked about computer graphics. MORE »
