Thinking bigger, Hawking began to consider the universe in its entirety. His genius lay in uniting different fields: gravitation, cosmology, quantum theory, thermodynamics and information theory.
“Stephen Hawking made difficult subjects accessible, engaging and relatable and this is what I wanted to portray in my design, which is inspired by a lecture he gave in Chile in 2008.”
Stephen Hawking’s genius lay not just in uniting different fields but making science accessible for all. His wit and unconventional style helped to make complex topics interesting and relatable.
