Неисправимый романтик..


💫 Великий Физик, Великий Посол Науки и Великий Человек Вселенной.

Пришел в наш мир в День смерти Галилея,
ушел к звездам - в День рождения Эйнштейна и День Пи.

О Вселенной
"It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love."

О научных открытиях
"I wouldn't compare it to sex, but it lasts longer."
(at a science festival in 2011)

О настойчивости
"However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don't just give up."
(at an Oxford University Union speech in 2016)

O любопытстве
"So remember, look at the stars and not at your feet."

Об интеллекте

О космосе
"May you keep flying like superman in microgravity."
(to NASA astronauts in 2014)

"I have always tried to overcome the limitations of my condition and lead as full a life as possible. I have traveled the world, from the Antarctic to zero gravity. Perhaps one day I will go into space."
(to the New York Times in 2011)

"I have already completed a zero gravity flight which allowed me to float weightless, but my ultimate ambition is to fly into space."
