Stephen Hawking joins Facebook and makes profound first post

With a brain the size of a planet, Professor Stephen Hawking must be worth a like

He’s tackled the greatest mysteries of the universe, but Professor Stephen Hawking has never mastered the science of social media. Until now.


The famous theoretical physicist has posted his first message on Facebook, an event that has seen his page rocket to almost a million likes in a matter of days.

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my Facebook Page. -SH”
