    The absence of event horizons mean that there are no black holes — in the sense of regimes from which light can’t escape to infinity. There are however apparent horizons which persist for a period of time. This suggests that black holes should be redefined as metastable bound states of the gravitational field.

  3. Hawking, tv movie, 2004 

    A dramatisation of Stephen Hawking’s early years at Cambridge.  

    I have seen it recently. Good film. Excellent performance of Cumberbatch. An inspiring and intellectually stimulating movie. Presently watchable on youtube

    Remember to look up at the stars, and not down to your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.

In 1993 when Stephen Hawking starred on Star Trek: The Next Generation, he passed the warp drive on a guided set tour and was overheard as saying: “I’m working on that”.
