Time travel’s been one of man’s wildest fantasies for centuries. It’s long been a popular trend in movies and fiction, inspiring everything from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine to the Charlton Heston shrine that is The Planet of the Apes. And with the opening of Interstellar today — not to spoil anything — we’re about to fantasize about it even more.
When you hear about Stephen Hawking, you hear about his mind. What you hear about far less is his life, and that’s a shame. Within it, there is a beautiful love story. Rightly so, The Theory of Everything brings the personal tale of one of the brightest living humans to light.
Time travel is possible — or at least a lot of serious physicists say so. It’s probably not possible to pull it off in a souped-up Delorean, but there are wormholes, Tipler cylinders, and other Einstein-inspired theories for how it could work. Which raises the question: Why haven’t we met any visitors from another time?
You know Stephen Hawking as one of the smartest living people on the planet, but you may not know the story of his life before he was famous. Here’s the second trailer from the upcoming movieThe Theory of Everything, which tells his tale.
It is a great year for nerd icons in Hollywood. We’ve already had a look at Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, and now, we’re finally getting a peek at Stephen Hawking, co-ed, in the first full-length trailer for The Theory of Everything.
Here’s a good deed you can do without parting with a single thing. Synthetic voices for people who have lost the ability to speak only come in generic types — think of Stephen Hawking’s voice — but one fascinating project wants to build custom voices for each person. To do that they need your help: specifically, a recording of your voice.
You’ve probably seen plenty of headlines this week proclaiming “Stephen Hawking Says Black Holes Don’t Exist” and heard people who read those headlines chattering excitedly about this seemingly huge shift in astrophysics. But as PopMech wisely points out, that’s not an accurate summary of what Hawking actually said.
Stephen Hawking. Theoretical Physicist. Cosmologist. Smart guy. Beyond genius, actually. Hell, very probably the best brain that us humans have right now. But so much of his intelligence is hard to grasp for less wrinkled brains like us.
Stephen Hawking is a survivor. He’s been valiantly holding his own against ALS disease for 50 years now, but it’s still taking its toll. The cheek-twitching mechanism he’s been using to talk for the past 10 years isn’t quite as efficient as it used to be. He’s down to one word per minute at times, but Intel’s CTO is working hard on a fix.
