Stephen Hawking doubts someone of his talent and condition would be supported today as he was

Speaking at the event that celebrated his 50th year as a fellow at the University of Cambridge’s Gonville and Caius college, Stephen Hawking expressed his doubts whether a young student of similar talents, as well as disabilities, would receive the kinda of support he had.

His determination to live on despite being confined to a wheel chair all his life is inspiring, but it’s unlikely he could have survived to live this day were it not for his fellows and support at Caius College; nevermind his outstanding achievements in physics.
