Stephen Hawkin to star in film

StephenHawking.jpgThe stunningly intelligent Professor Stephen Hawking is set to star in a film that will attempt to explain the most complex theories of science, including the theory that there are multiple dimensions of space.

According to The Sunday Times through Physorg.com the film is entitled Beyond the Horizon and tells the story of a fictional religious affairs correspondant who comes to Hawkings for an interview and slowly begins to turn to the theories and ideas he presents.

The academic, who is the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge -- a post once held by Isaac Newton -- was diagnosed with the muscle-wasting condition motor neurone disease at the age of 22. He is in a wheelchair and speaks with the aid of a computer and voice synthesiser.

He is also set to narrate the soundtrack for the film and is currently working with Leonard Mlodinow, a former Star Trek series writer, to complete the script.

I've always been fascinated with Hawkings work and the theoretical side of physics, particularly applied to space, and I think this project could be utterly fascinating. I do believe that the film will be displayed in IMAX, although I can't quote you the source where I read that yesterday, my apologies.

He appeared at the beginning of "Descent", one of the best Star Trek TNG episodes ever. I sound like the comic book guy in The Simpsons.
