    An amazing run that is not over yet for Stephen Hawking.

    Hawking is recovering from hospitalisation and apparently his speech will be delivered on his behalf, with him watching from home.

    One day I'll pick up a Brief History of Time.

    I think some of his other popular press work is hard to read, but this is really a delightful book. :)

    I read it as an undergraduate at University. Well worth a read.

    I would have never of guessed he has just turned 70!
