Hawking sails into Tenerife

THE Starmus Festival is just around the corner, and its star attraction is already on his way.

When Professor Stephen Hawking agreed to come to Tenerife to speak at Starmus, his doctor had other ideas. He would not let the Nobel Prize winner undergo what would be a gruelling five-hour flight, and everything else that goes with a plane journey.

With Hawking adamant he wanted to attend the event, Plan B was launched after someone suggested he could come by ship.
