Stephen Hawking speaks on Facebook; Congratulations Mark Zuckerberg!

The Stephen Hawking, noted Theoretical Physicist joined Facebook today. Within no time during the time of writing this article his page has 1,151,476 likes. I think record number of likes in shortest time period, not sure. Hope Facebook will release something in future or someone else will dissect this aspect. Time vs Hawking Liking :) Welcome Sir, thank you to come in open, and meet people. And Congratulations Mark Zuckerberg and Company.

So next time when your mom scold you for being on Facebook again, put the good excuse now, 'I am reading by Hawking' :-P 

I about Stephen Hawking from the time His Book Brief History of Time published. In those times, book was too much expensive to me, I purchased it from money earned from giving Tuition to high school students. It was a great read.

On Facebook, I missed most often real quest for knowledge. This was chance only, only 3/4 days back from I was searching Social Media for Scientists, Engineers, Physicist and Computer Scientists / University Professors.

I was in need of a Social Media platform where I can meet like minded people who speak around Physics and Computing. Hope a large pool of young students, engineers and scientists will enjoy meeting to Hawking via Facebook.

From Cambridge University Hawking Posted on his Facebook this morning following words:

"I have always wondered what makes the universe exist. Time and space may forever be a mystery, but that has not stopped my pursuit. Our connections to one another have grown infinitely and now that I have the chance, I’m eager to share this journey with you. Be curious, I know I will forever be.
Welcome, and thank you for visiting my Facebook Page. -SH"

Do you know, he is recipient of Dirac Medal (1987).
