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.
The man who had some theories about relativity was also an eccentric who gleefully eschewed socks, dodged German military service and spurned social conventions.
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.
