    Watch out. We've got a badass over here.

    The Theory of Everything is really great. That's probably because scientists, including Stephen Hawking, do amazing things every day, which makes for some pretty compelling storytelling. It also makes them badass if you're Neil deGrasse Tyson.

  4. Stephen Hawking Also Thinks Human-Level AI May Lead to Our Destruction, by the Way

    Dude sure loves singularities.

    Robotics may not be Stephen Hawking's field, but when the brilliant theoretical physicist has something to say about the future of science and the human race, it's hard not to listen. Especially when what he says involves humanity's destruction at the hands of AI we create. But hey, he's already an expert on one kind of singularity, so why not shoot for a second?

  5. Stephen Hawking’s New Speech System With SwiftKey Delivers His Brilliance Twice as Fast

    Hopefully the rest of us are ready for that much knowledge.

    Stephen Hawking's brain may be lightyears ahead of ours, but the computer system that helped the theoretical physicist communicate his brilliant thoughts to the world had long been stuck in the past at over 20 years old. Now he's gotten an upgrade complete with modern text-prediction capability so that he can communicate more effectively and discover what it's like to try to teach text prediction that you never, ever mean to say "ducking."

  9. The International Trailer for Stephen Hawking’s Biopic Will Give You All the Science Feels

    We like our science with a healthy dose of optimism.

    If this movie does not look positively heartwarming and uplifting, there is a black hole where your heart should be. Luckily, that's impossible, because a black hole of that size would evaporate quickly, so you're all good to enjoy this trailer.

    "Not if we kill God first!"—Philip Pullman [Citation needed]

    In his foreword for the new book Starmus: 5 Years of Man in Space, Stephen Hawking warns that the Higgs boson particle (also called the "God" particle, because monotheism) discovered by CERN scientists in 2012 and thought to give matter its mass, could destroy the Universe and "we wouldn't see it coming."
