RIP Stephen Hawking (Video)

Theoretical physicist, cosmologist, Stephen Hawking has passed away. He was 76 years old. Widely recognized as one of the brightest minds of all time, Professor Hawking lived most his life with a rare form of motor neurone disease (diagnosed at the age of 22, given only a few years to live at the time) that limited his body to a wheelchair and his speech to a voice synthesizer.

Science: Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Take on Aliens And Why We Should Become A Multiplanetary Species (Video)

The Theory of Everything (Trailer)

Dr. Stephen Hawking. Theoretical physicist. Cosmologist. Director of Research at the Center for Theoretical Cosmology (of course). Now the all around enigmatic consult to humanity for most phenomena in the universe. But before he became more to the world, he was (and is) first a man, unto himself and beholden to a small circle of folks. This look at the history of Hawking (played by Eddie Redmayne) – then and now – is the world’s first.

And it looks to be a good look.

This trailer for “Theory of Everything” (above) reveals Hawking highlights in the movie – covering the meeting, wooing and wedding of his wife… his being diagnosed as having amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (popularly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease)… and his 40 years of life since. First screening will be the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on September 7, 2014; with a release date set for November 7, 2014, for the States.
