Happy Birthday, Stephen

Steven HawkingOn January 8th, 1942, Stephen Hawking was born in Oxford, England. Black holes, A Brief History of Time, mathematics and cosmology - and all in his head.
(Yeah. Technology is dehumanizing.)

"We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special."

(ps - check out him and Captain Pike reviewing movies at The New Adventures of Queen Victoria from last year.)

I think it's Stephen with ph, by the way. And sadly he is very unwell at the moment. But then he has been unwell since the time, nearly 50 years ago, when he was given just a couple of years to live. An amazing man.
