All things space and my work at Urania

Wonderful documentary on Stephen Hawking

This is recommended for a rainy Sunday… The Irish comedian – and scientist – Dara O’Briain followed the world famous scientist Stephen Hawking in his daily life. We get some great glimpses of his work and family and also of his sense of humour, how his face literally lits up when he is laughing ! Dara questions him on his two marriages… And Stephen answers “Women are a mystery to me” and after a pause: “That is the fun”. Brilliant.

And if you still want proof of Professor Hawking’s sense of humour, here is the Little Britain sketch from Comic Relief:
