Professor Stephen Hawking is an absolute genius. His A Brief History Of Time book is an engrossing read which opens scientific theories up to mere mortals like me an delivers them in a digestible manner.
But forget all of that, he also appeared on The Simpsons and that makes him very cool.
In this video he talks about the episode he appeared in, as well as how he came to be involved in the long running animated series in the first place.
I’m sure many Americans first heard of Stephen Hawking through The Simpsons, but I wonder how many have since searched for his name online and found out what the guy is all about.
Because of his disability, Hawking has to talk through a computer, but he still seems to exude personality and intellect. A great man, a great video interview, and a great episode of The Simpsons.
