For Stephen Hawking’s, the birth of his first child, was the most happy moment in his life. After that experience, the celebrated theoretical physicist says that the new experience he’s most looking forward to is to his very real possibility of space flight. He’s already completed a zero-gravity flight that allowed him to float weightless, and says that traveling in space is what will make him happy now.
The cosmologist and physicist will leave the Earth on board Richard Branson’s spaceship, he has said.
Professor Hawking told Good Morning Britain that he’s never dreamt that he’d be able to head into space. “But Richard Branson has offered me a seat on Virgin Galactic, and I said yes immediately. Since that day, I have never changed my mind,” he said on Monday.
