Remembering A Genius

While we are mourning the passing of the epically brilliant Stephen Hawking, we are comforted by the fact that his profound insights into the workings of our Universe will live on and will inspire and inform future generations of humans who simply long to understand.

At CuriosityStream, we will always be grateful that Stephen Hawking passionately wanted to share his enthusiasm for the wonders of the Universe with his fellow humans.  His dedicated and tireless work on television projects that took viewers to the furthest reaches of his mind and the cosmos he sought to deeply understand are treasured gifts to humanity.  Although Stephen Hawking demonstrated a remarkable optimism about our capacity to understand the Universe, he also cautioned us about the fragility of our human condition as we currently remain bound to a small planet subject to meteor strikes and other natural and manmade catastrophes.  In the end, he urged us all to get on with the quest to explore and populate worlds beyond our origin.  He will always remain a towering figure in the history of human thought and inspiration.

In tribute, please enjoy our complete Emmy® Award-winning series, Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places, including the newly released third and final episode, free of charge until March 23, 2018.
