Stephen Hawking Women ‘a Complete Mystery’
January 5, 2012 by staff
But the great Stephen Hawking says he still struggles with one tricky subject.
When asked what occupied his thoughts for most of his waking hours, he answered: ‘Women. They are a complete mystery.’
In an interview with New Scientist to mark his 70th birthday this weekend, the quantum physicist revealed a softer side behind his brilliant brain.
He even hinted at regrets in his personal life after being asked about his biggest mistake.
He said that thinking information was destroyed black holes was his biggest blunder – ‘or at least my biggest blunder in science.’
Professor Hawking, who was diagnosed with motor neurone disease at 21, conducted the interview as he communicates – using a voice machine that picks up the twitching of his cheek.
His conversation with the magazine came ahead of an international conference held in his honour that starts today at Cambridge University, where he used to be the Lucasian professor of mathematics.
