Today, on the 14th of March, 2018, the human race has suffered an immeasurable loss.
The loss of a man who was not only one of the greatest scientists of all times and one of the most influential people on the planet, but also a model and inspiration for many of us.
Stephen Hawking was a man of exceptional power of spirit and a model of civic stance. He changed the way we perceive our Universe, our time and ourselves, and did it with his unique talent of communication and gentle, Hawking-style sense of humour.
I took many of the photographs that appear in this video during my work for Starmus III in the Canary Islands, with Nobel Prize winners, scientists, astronauts and artists.
