A Brief History of Stephen Hawking!

In September of this year, the Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada opened their new Stephen Hawking Centre to provide more space for more researchers to investigate the foundations of physics.  As part of their opening celebration, they produced a short film on the life and works of the inspirational Stephen Hawking, and they were kind enough to forward me a link to the video.

If you have 5 minutes, enjoy “A Brief History of Stephen Hawking”!

(One thing I realized while watching the video that I should have learned long ago: Pink Floyd used excerpts of Stephen Hawking’s words and electronic voice in their song, “Keep Talking“.  The video for “Keep Talking” is here!)
