JPL’s Theodore von Kármán Lecture Series aims to bring the excitement of JPL’s missions, instruments and other technologies to an audience of both JPL employees and the general public. Lectures take place on consecutive Thursdays and Fridays.

The Thursday lectures take place in JPL's Theodore von Kármán Auditorium, are streamed live via Ustream, and are archived for later viewing.

The Friday lectures are held at the Beckman Auditorium on the Caltech campus, located at Michigan Avenue south of Del Mar Boulevard.

Both lectures start at 7 p.m. Admission and parking are free for all lectures, no reservations are required and seating is limited.
