“Be curious (…) look up at the stars and not down at your feet.” – Stephen Hawking
This is the latest message from Stephen Hawking, the legendary physicist / cosmologist whose sudden appearance at the Science Museum in London caused a sensation. The Museum -on the occasion of his birthday- hosts an exhibition titled ‘Stephen Hawking: A 70th Birthday Celebration’:
Incredible how a man diagnosed with motor neuron disease when he was just 21 (back in 1963) and told he would live no longer than 5 more years has defied medical science the way he did, but even more, it’s awe-inspiring how a man physically-challenged in every way possible has defied his paralysis to change our understanding of the universe and our position in it.
Happy Birthday Sir!
