Watch: A 2-Minute Animation Of Stephen Hawking’s Big Ideas

The latest of the Guardian Science’s MadeSimple animation series presents “Stephen Hawking’s Big Ideas Made Simple,” which condenses his grandest theories into a 2.5-minute video. In the playful cut-paper animation, a smiling cartoon Hawking rides his wheelchair like a chariot through space with his colleague, Roger Penrose. They slip into a black hole, where lots of matter—including lamps, light bulbs, and flashlights—gets crumpled up by a god-like pair of hands into a point of infinite density called a “singularity.” At the edge of the black hole, pairs of particles promise, “I’ll never forget you!” as one falls in and the other escapes.
