This guy is great!

Despite having everything against him healthwise, he continues to plod on and announce fascinating theories.
Now Stephen Hawking has come up with another headline to keep us following his progress and discoveries!:

What a brilliant bloke!

Indeed, he is living proof that disabled people can and do succeed in life.

Yeah but he's just turned the world of physics on it's head!
Absolutely brilliant - he'll have physicists all over the world arguing for years lol

As we gain more knowledge about the Universe the more we'll realise how little we know.
I wonder how people in 100 years time will view Stephan Hawking? As a great physicist or as a disabled person.

I found 'A Brief History of Time' tough going but persevered.
An incredible person and quite an inspiration.

Its a shame that more disabled folk are not give a chance by prospective employers, as the world could be a much better place if they was given a chance
Well done to Stephen and people like him which always have a surprise or 2 up their sleeves Smiley
