Scientific greatness

THE letters by Sachidha Nath and Vivien Mitchell in yesterday’s FT (17/3/18 p28) regarding the life and work of Stephen Hawking are acknowledged.

They show there are more of us Fijians who value the scientific greatness of the British scientist. There is more to life than bread and butter. We humans also have curiosity, and (sometimes) want to know for the sake of knowing.

The South Pacific Physics Society is planning a series of seminars and public lectures for those who are interested in knowing more about Stephen’s work, and about astronomy, cosmology, quantum theory and other similar stuff that may grab their imagination.

Thanks to The Fiji Times for the excellent coverage of the work of Stephen Hawking.
