Mr. Hawking's Wild Ride
Physicist and author Stephen Hawking was up, up, and way out of his wheelchair in his recent ride on the Vomit Comet.
I guess the best part of this story is that Hawking "holds" the Newton Chair at Oxford. The physical chair that has made life quite liveable for Hawking is something that you know Isaac would have loved, as is the purity of concept of one so earth-bound experiencing zero-G so joyfully.
He wasn't supposed to live past 25, and here he is at 65, in zero-G, above, and on his third or fourth marriage to a young blonde hottie, below.
Rock on, Rocket Man.
