Fred Kavli will unveil a large glass disk at the site of the future Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology during the inauguration ceremony and reception to be held Monday, March 17 at 4:00 p.m. on The Green. All staff are invited.

Roger Blandford, Institute Director and first holder of the Pehong and Adele Chen Chair of Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology, will deliver a short speech, as will Kavli, Research Director Persis Drell, and Stanford Provost John Etchemendy.

The Institute’s focal point, a 25,000 square-foot building that includes workspace, laboratory space and an auditorium, will be completed in 2005.
