Sheldon Cooper meets Stephen Hawking: first pictures

April 4th, 2012 by Marc Comments

The pics were run by the guys at DigitalSpy and the episode with air in the US tomorrow (Thurs 4 April). The episode is called ‘The Hawking Excitation’, which follows Sheldon’s attempts to track down the cosmologist after Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) begins working with him.


On another note, here’s a great graphic the guys at PHDOnline did in honour of Stephen Hawking, check it out.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer.

Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
