Happy Birthday to a hero of science geeks everywhere;

Born on January 8, 1942 Professor hawking is an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author, actor, Director of Research at the Center for Theoretical Cosmology at University of Cambridge and above all a survivor. Through his life he has been a polarizing and sometimes controversial figure in the science community but one thing is for certain; when he speaks, the world listens. I honestly intended to write a long post about how he’s influenced me and mention the almost unbelievable number of accolades he’s received and accomplishments he’s achieved throughout his career but instead I think that it’s clear that we all know the magnitude of this man.

If you haven’t already, get out and see “Theory of Everything” in theatres now.

And in the almost impossible chance you’re watching…….HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
