Hawking zero-gravity flight
Permalink  
 


The British physicist Stephen Hawking is to embark on a zero-gravity flight in a specially modified plane.
The jet simulates the experience of weightlessness during 25-second plunges over the Atlantic Ocean.
During these plunges, Professor Hawking will float free, unrestricted by his paralysed muscles and his wheelchair.

Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking has been invited to the Fourth International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians (ICCM), to be held in Hangzhou, capital city of east China's Zhejiang Province

"Mr Hawking will visit Hangzhou if he is in good shape. If he comes, we will try to give the master an opportunity to get closer to ordinary people" - Yau Shing-Tung, ICCM chairman.

ICCM's fourth congress is slated for Dec. 17 to 23 and is expected to draw some 1,500 participants.

Last night, nearly 3,000 people received a mini lesson on the origin of the universe from perhaps the world’s most famous cosmologist, Stephen Hawking.
Hawking spoke to a packed audience in Zellerbach Hall about how Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity and quantum theory explained the creation of the universe.
The event was also simultaneously broadcast to a sold-out Wheeler Auditorium, as well as Webcast live.

Stephen Hawking lecture
Permalink  
 


It's a rare day that a physics lecture at the University of California, Berkeley, fills 2,000 seats, with an overflow crowd of several hundred people eager to watch a live video simulcast on a big screen.
But that day will arrive next Tuesday (March 13) on campus when cosmology superstar Stephen Hawking delivers the annual J. Robert Oppenheimer Lecture in Physics. Tickets for Hawking's talk at the 2,000-seat Zellerbach Auditorium - and for the live video simulcast at the 700-seat Wheeler Auditorium - sold out swiftly. There are some 400 names on a waiting list.

British physicist Stephen Hawking, who is world-famous for his intellectual prowess as well as his physical frailty, has made a firm date with weightlessness on April 26, aboard a jet flying out of NASA's Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.
Hawking's excellent adventure, provided by California-based Zero Gravity Corp., would represent one small step toward the 65-year-old scientist's goal of flying in space as early as 2009 — as well as one giant leap for people with disabilities.

Hawking to star in Big Bang
Permalink  
 


Professor Stephen Hawking, Britain’s world-renowned physicist, is to switch from theories of multidimensional space to the three dimensions of the Imax cinema by starring in a film that sets out his ideas on the origins and fate of the universe.
The film, Beyond the Horizon, will tackle some of the most daunting theories espoused by Hawking and other cosmologists, from the idea that space has up to 11 dimensions to the cause of the big bang itself.
The project is certain to boost Hawking’s public status. He will take the starring role and narrate a soundtrack explaining cosmological concepts as they are brought to life by advanced computer graphics.

Stephen Hawking, the Cambridge University physicist who wrote the best-selling A Brief History Of Time, is to start work on a new book that will examine how and why the universe was created.

The Grand Design, which is expected to be released in the autumn of 2008, will be co-authored by Leonard Mlodinow, a physicist and author who collaborated with Hawking on A Briefer History Of Time, which was published last year.
