Following the death this week of Professor Stephen Hawking, Sue Lawley introduces a special programme looking back at some of the extraordinary thinking of one the world’s most influential scientists. The hour long programme is another chance to hear his 2016 BBC Reith Lectures on black holes. For many of us black holes are pretty mind-boggling – the stuff of science fictionnightmares. But Stephen Hawking said – rather than see them as menacing and destructive, we should try to understand them…. and thereby unlock the secrets of the Universe.
This special will air on Friday, March 23rd, at 10 AM and 8 PM here on 88.3 FM KCPW.
