Stephen Hawking’s ashes to be interred near graves of Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin …

Professor Hawking.jpg

“The ashes of Professor Stephen Hawking will be interred at Westminster Abbey in London, near the remains of fellow scientists Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.

Key points:

  • Professor Hawking will be buried near fellow fellow distinguished scientists
  • Family will hold private funeral at Cambridge University at the end of March
  • A public service will be held Westminster later in the year
  • A private funeral service for the physicist will be held at the end of the month, before a service at Westminster later in the year.

The Dean of Westminster, John Hall, said it was “entirely fitting” Professor Hawking be buried near his fellow distinguished scientists.

“Sir Isaac Newton was buried in the Abbey in 1727. Charles Darwin was buried beside Isaac Newton in 1882,” Mr Hall said.”

Vale Stephen Hawking 1942-2018 …

The greatest mind of our time. Bear has always tried to read and understand what he is talking about but a lot was beyond me unfortunately.

Rest well Stephen. Bear hopes you are wrong about one thing that a God does exist and you rest well.

500-Million-Year-Old ‘Smiling’ Worm Rears Its Head …

Had to share because you thought WALMARTIANS were weird …

“Heads or tails? Scientists finally have an answer in the case of the odd ancient worm Hallucigenia, which leaves fossils so bizarre that researchers once thought its top was its bottom and its back was its front.”

What Nobel winner Tim Hunt’s sexist outburst actually tells us – opinion – 10 June 2015 – New Scientist …

Biochemist Tim Hunt suggests gendersegregated labs, so the men aren't distracted by the tearful girls. What was he thinking

Incredibly smart man who spoke his mind

Yep Bear has to comment …

But first a quote …

“Time to adjust

Maybe we just shouldn’t let those people be scientists. After all, in Hunt’s world, that used to solve the problem with girls. Or as we now call them, women.

In fact, people are always falling in love – and crying, come to that. We probably just shouldn’t let people be scientists.

When Hunt went to school and Latin was still cutting edge, this logical exercise was called “reductio ad absurdum” – or, the outcome of these ideas is obviously ridiculous. I suspect Hunt knows that. His wife is a professor of immunology at a top British university. He can’t actually be against women scientists. So why on earth is he saying this to a roomful of reporters?

As a survivor of the 1970s, I think I can guess. Hunt started as a scientist in a world where every colleague who mattered was pretty much like him, in class and education as well as gender. Now, they aren’t. People have had to adjust – or not – to that, and those whose privilege was once unchallenged have the hardest time. Perhaps this was the confused and angry outburst, disguised as a joke, from someone who still hasn’t made peace with that shift. I know other prominent scientists who have similar feelings, some much younger than Hunt.

Trying to understand this does not mean excusing or approving. What this really demonstrates is how far from gender equality science is. If we want to make that trip, we need to start understanding this emotional response in otherwise intelligent men. Which brings me back to what science does best. I suggest, though, that anyone looking at this psychological impact of social evolution should do it in a co-ed lab.”

So if you speak your mind you are criticised for it?

Grow up people!

If Tim Hunt thought you were a worthy scientist he would not care if you were an alien.

It is a ridiculous media beat up which is happening too much these days.

Maybe it is the media that needs to grow up.
