Stephen Hawking, Center Stage

From Yahoo News, Physicist Stephen Hawking will star in a new movie titled "Beyond the Horizon."

The film, "Beyond the Horizon," aims to explain some of the complicated theories backed by Hawking and his fellow physicists, including the idea that space has up to 11 dimensions and the cause of the big bang.

The 64-year-old Hawking, famous for his 1988 international best-seller "A Brief History of Time," will also narrate a soundtrack which explains cosmological concepts.

I've been fascinated with Stephen Hawking for years. When I get the blues about my own little problems, I think of all that he has accomplished despite having been diagnosed with ALS at age 22, and it puts everything into perspective.
