I always love hearing things from Stephen Hawking.  He’s always got an interesting point of view and keeps his descriptions simple for us mere mortals.  His one great wish seems to be experiencing space travel.

The scientist revealed he also wanted to try out space travel himself, albeit by more conventional means.

“I am not afraid of death but I’m in no hurry to die. My next goal is to go into space,” said Hawking.

And referring to the British entrepreneur and Virgin tycoon who has set up a travel agency to take private individuals on space flights from 2008, Hawking said: “Maybe Richard Branson will help me.”

There is quite a bit in the interview with BBC covered by ExtremeTech.
