does anyone know if this is free or is there admission? students only or open to the public?


The MIT website says it is open to the general public.



It looks like this might be a little later than intended, but still going on.

According to BoingBoing:

"Well, I've just had my second flight cancellation from London-Boston in 24 hours, and my new flight doesn't land until 5PM. As many of you know, I'm scheduled to be speaking at MIT's Bartos Theater at 5PM, which means I'm going to be late."



Following the link from the BoingBoing page, MIT's event page has an updated starting time of 6:30.
