Man who voiced Hawking

Stephen Hawking was famous for his computer-generated voice, that wasn’t allowed being used without his personal permission.

But whose voice that was? Dennis Klatt’s! He was the first person to design a device that was able to produce human speech based on Klatt’s recordings.

Klatt named the voice “Perfect Paul”, and it’ll be forever associated with Hawking.

Party for time travelers

Once Stephen Hawking conducted the party for time-traveling to learn if this phenomenon really existed.

No one showed for the party, and Hawking came to the conclusion that time travel wasn’t possible.

“I gave a party for time-travelers, but I didn’t send out the invitations until after the party. I sat there a long time, but no one came,” Stephen Hawking told.

Hawking died on the day Einstein was born

The interesting fact is that the scientist died on the same day  Albert Einstein was born, 14th of March, which is 3.14, the number Pi. Great conspiracy theory, huh?

This holiday was established in 1987 by the physicist from San Francisco Larry Shaw, who noted that the American date recording system (month/date) date March 14 – 3/14 – and the time 1:59:26 coincides with the first digits of the number π=3.1415926…

Since then, the holiday is celebrated by the math fans all over the world.

Professor Sarah Parcak wrote on her Twitter account she and Stephen Hawking almost died 15 years ago.

It happened at Cambridge University. Below she explains the details of the collision:

Stephen Hawking was in space… Almost

NASA astronauts let Hawking experience the zero gravity flight. Probably, one of the greatest memories for both astronauts and Stephen Hawking.

“For me, this was true freedom,” said Hawking. “People who know me well say that my smile was the biggest they’d ever seen. I was superman for those few minutes.

See the video NASA shared on Twitter after Hawking’s death:

Running over people he didn’t like

Hawking was diagnosed with a terrible illness in 1963 when he was 21, and he was expected to live a few years. He was able to move only fingers on one hand and was completely paralyzed.

The illness left him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

It was rumored that Hawking runned over people’s toes with his wheelchair if he didn’t like the person.
