It is said that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more true than in the case of black holes.

I was pleased to have the opportunity to speak about black holes at Imperial College London on Monday. Imperial College continues to be one of the world's leading centres for research in theoretical physics, string theory, cosmology, and quantum gravity. Over the years I...

A visual imagination can be a powerful tool for a scientist, allowing fresh insights into nature. It is also helpful for explaining our ideas to the public – a vital skill for modern scientists. The Breakthrough Prize Junior Challenge is a great way for young people to test their scientific imagination and spread some of humanity’s most profound ideas. Good luck to all this year’s...

I have spent the last five days in beautiful Copenhagen. Last night I presented my Carlsberg Foundation (Carlsbergfondet) Distinguished Lecture “Quantum Black Holes” in the DR Concert Hall in front of 1,800 spectators and 7,000 people in cinemas around Denmark. After my lecture I met Crown Princess Mary and was presented with a 133 year old Carlsberg beer.

Monday and Tuesday I participated in...

Last year, I received a phone call from Paul Rudd, who challenged me to a game of Quantum Chess for a chance to speak at California Institute of Technology - Caltech. Due to a glitch - and constant help from future Keanu Reeves (not cool, Johnny Utah) - Paul won the game. He said that "quantum entanglement" was the key to his success. More like beginner's luck. Anyhow, a few weeks ago, I am...

It's been an extraordinary time to be alive and working in the field of cosmology. I'm happy if I've been able to make a contribution to our understanding of black holes and the origin of the universe. But it would be an empty universe indeed if it were not for my family and friends. So as I reach my 75th birthday, it's time for me to say thank you to all of you who have helped and supported...
