Stephen Hawking and CERN have won this year’s prestigious Fundamental Physics Prize. The award was given to Hawking for his discovery that black holes emit radiation, and his “deep contributions” to quantum gravity and quantum aspects of the early universe. The prize money – a whopping R26m – is considered to be science’s most lucrative award.
Some people become really famous, and then we forget all about them when they were younger. People change, perceptions change – but photos don’t. Check out these amazing photos of world figures.
