Remembering a physics conference that took place

posted by Jason Kottke   Mar 07, 2007

Remembering a physics conference that took place in NYC 20 years ago about high-temperature superconductors. One session, the “Woodstock of Physics”, lasted until 3:15 in the morning; “it was like the Texas chili cook-off or the Iowa State Fair apple pie bake-off.” The conference was such a big deal at the time that physicists with conference badges were immediately ushered into a nightclub in Chelsea for free by the bouncers.
