You guys have to watch this and see the look on Stephen Hawking’s face at the end of the video.
Priceless, isn’t it? :)
I didn't believe any of this mattered until I saw him GRIN.
Brought a smile to my face as well.
That's just brightened my day.
HOLY S**T hes effectively talking about Higgs having solved the theory of everything. The theory that took Einstein to his grave a madman, with his inability to unify Quantum Physics with the theory of relativity. This is what he is referring to right??? WOW
Yes, I believe he is referring to the recent discovery of a Higgs type particle (the Higgs Boson)
No, he's talking about the standard model, not the theory of everything, that still remains firmly out of reach.
It's not out of reach, it's string theory/M-theory. It's just that… uh… well… the supposed vibrating strings of energy would be so insanely small that we'll never be able to empirically test them, but, hey, it's still there!… probably.
Sure, but that is not what he is talking about..
Love it when he smiles. Was fortunate enought to have the opportunity to meet Dr. Hawking and watch him give a talk last month here in Seattle. Truly a life changing experience.
