Stephen Hawking

Hello everyone!

I am watching Stephen Hawking's "Into the Universe: Aliens" special on the Discovery Channel!  Way cool!

From dsc.discovery.com:

Stephen Hawking
Stephen Hawking hosts an epic new kind of cosmology series, a Planet Earth of the heavens. It takes the world's most famous scientific mind and sets it free, powered by the limitless possibilities of computer animation. Hawking gives us the ultimate guide to the universe, a ripping yarn based on real science, spanning the whole of space and time — from the nature of the universe itself, to the chances of alien life, and the real possibility of time travel.
ALIENS: Premieres Sunday April 25 @ 9 E/P
Hawking joins science and imagination to explore one of the most important mysteries facing humankind — the possibility of alien, intelligent life and the likelihood of future "contact." Traveling from the moons of Jupiter to a galaxy maybe not so far, far away, he'll introduce us to possible alien life forms — in stunning CGI — that face the same universal trials of adaptation and survival as the residents of Earth.

Some of the Aliens from the show:
Alien attack!!!

I definitely recommend checking out the show if you get the chance.  Regardless of your thoughts on the subject, the visuals are stunning and the concept of how large the universe is will impress you!  

The other two shows are:
TIME TRAVEL: Premieres Sunday April 25 @ 10 E/P
The promise of time travel has long been one of the world's favorite scientific "what-ifs?" Hawking explores all the possibilities, warping the very fabric of time and space as he goes. From killing your grandfather to riding a black hole, we learn the pitfalls and the prospects for a technology that could quite literally, change everything.
THE STORY OF EVERYTHING: Premieres Sunday May 2 @ 9 E/P
In two mind-blowing hours, Hawking reveals the wonders of the cosmos to a new generation. Delve into the mind of the world's most famous living scientist and reveal the splendor and majesty of the universe as never seen before. See how the universe began, how it creates stars, black holes and life — and how everything will end.

If you don't know who Stephen Hawking (wikipedia site if you click his name) is, check out this site: http://www.hawking.org.uk/ (His website).  I really encourage you to look at his site and see what you can learn about him, his work, and his life.

I hope that you had a wonderful weekend.  See you tomorrow!
