Professor Stephen Hawking. 8th January 1942 – 14th March 2018.
“One of the great revelations of the space age has been the perspective it has given humanity on ourselves. When we see the earth from space, we see ourselves as a whole. We see the unity and not the divisions. It is such a simple image with a compelling message, one planet, one human race. We are here together and we need to live together with tolerance and respect. We must become global citizens. I have been enormously privileged through my work to be able to contribute to our understanding of the universe, but it would be an empty universe indeed, if it were not for the people I love and who love me. We are all time travellers journeying together into the future. Let us work together to make that future a place we want to visit.”
