Stephen Hawking to be divorced

October 20, 2006

So Stephen Hawking is to be divorced. Something I didn’t know though, was the rich tapestry that makes up his life and relationships.

“The 64-year-old scientist, author of the best seller “A Brief History of Time,” is almost completely paralyzed by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. He communicates with the help of a voice synthesizer, which was designed by his wife’s previous husband.”

So not only can this guy talk with the help of a device designed by his wife’s previous husband, but he was divorced in 1991 from a woman whom he has had 3-children. His life is far more complex than mine.
