To celebrate the release of the Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything, this is a video of Neil DeGrasse Tyson highlighting one of the many examples of why Stephen Hawking has been so instrumental to our understanding of the universe. Did you know black holes can evaporate? That was news to me. It's crazy to think black holes can evaporate but the cat piss on my bedroom carpet still smells after all these months.
Hit the jump for the video.
Thanks to Tony, who agrees we should get these guys on some commemorative coins or something.
