Stephen Hawking is the first disabled person to experience zero gravity, and flies for an instant more lightly above the earth than most people who regularly walk upon it. But of course he flies anyway.


Hawking’s zero-g flight is an inspiration to the rest of the human race. In a world filled with those that think in terms of limits, this flight shows that thinking only in terms of limits sells ourselves short. Hawking’s thought in terms of possibilities. He was and is the expression of the modern “dreamer.”
