It is our intellectual curiosity which sets mankind aside from other living beings, our ability to ask difficult questions, solve problems and find solutions.

Professor Hawking has been confined to his wheelchair for most of his life but this has not stopped his giant intellect wrestling with the meaning of life and “big bang” theory.
