In memoriam Professor Stephen Hawking 1942 – 2018.


Can you hear me? It has the been a glorious
time to be alive doing research in theoretical physics. Our picture of the
universe has changed a great deal in the last 50 years and I’m happy if I have
made a small contribution. The fact that we humans who are ourselves mere
collections of fundamental particles of nature have been able to come as close
to an understanding of the laws governing us and our universe is a great
triumph. I want to share my excitement and enthusiasm about this quest. So remember to look up at the stars and
not down at your feet try to make sense of what you see and
wonder about what makes the universe exist be curious and however difficult
life may seem there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters
that you don’t just give up. Thank you for listening.
