Today, the scientific world is grieving the loss of theoretical physicist, Dr. Stephen Hawking (pictured on left). Algoma U Professor Emeritus, Dr. Michael Keppel-Jones, will also be grieving the loss of the brilliant scientist, who he sailed Lake Ontario with in the summer of 1965, alongside Hawking's new wife, Jane. Keppel-Jones met Hawking while he was earning his PhD at Cornell University. Keppel-Jones cherishes this photo he took of the then up-and-coming scientist in the mid-1960s.
