Hawking promotes 2016 Starmus show

PHYSICIST Stephen Hawking is in Tenerife to officially launch next year’s third annual Starmus Festival.

Organiser Garik Israelian said the Professor, who will tour the Island and also visit the Canary Islands’ Astrophysics Institute (IAC), may give a speech during his three-week stay.

The trip from England was a lengthy affair for him, and Prof Hawking stopped off in Lanzarote and Gran Canaria before arriving here.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
