To celebrate Stephen Hawking’s 70th birthday today (whooooot!), let’s soak in this inspiring video that celebrates Mr. Hawking while clever people such as Julie Payette, polyglot, ping-pong big ideas around at The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. Bonus: Cameos by William Shatner, Rick Hansen and David Foster. Be still, my heart.
If you need more after this, head over to the public outreach page of the Perimeter Institute. After watching a chalkboard cartoon ask “can we travel through time?” you can play The Mystery of Dark Matter video game.
Now who said art+science couldn’t be fun? What a jolly start to the new year!
