Bell, Robert (1841–1917), a Canadian geologist. He mapped much of the area around Hudson Bay and named thousands of Canadian lakes, rivers, and other geographical features. Bell was born in Toronto and attended McGill University. He joined the Canadian Geological Survey in 1856 and became its director in 1901.
He's ventured to the abyss of black holes, wagered on the information paradox and floated around in zero gravity. Meet the man, the legend, the super scientist: Stephen Hawking.
He was born exactly 300 years after Galileo died. He has yet to be awarded a Nobel Prize, although he was awarded a guest spot on “The Simpsons.” What else do you know (or not know) about this acclaimed physicist?
