But it's hardly like Hawking or the rest of DAMTP gets hit by the funding crisis.Now that's one way to put some serious pressure on your government!

Anyway, I'll wait and see if Hawking really moves- from that newspaper article, all that was apparent was that he was going to visit Perimeter for a month. That said, he is 66, so presumably will be retiring soon anyway.
He doesn't even have to move ... but the PR damage was done when all the speculation began.But it's hardly like Hawking or the rest of DAMTP gets hit by the funding crisis.
Interesting. Turok is headed there to assume position of executive director.But he's also being encouraged to move to Ontario by his University of Cambridge colleague Neil Turok, the mathematical physicist who will take over as Perimeter's executive director on Oct. 1. Perimeter confirmed last night that it has made a standing offer to Hawking.
So perhaps - Hawking would be enticed by Turok's move to PI.With Stephen Hawking, he later developed the Hawking-Turok instanton solutions describing the birth of inflationary universes.

Sure, and I don't think there are many people who would disagree with his comments regarding the amalgamation of the two research councils.
So my comments may have been a little blasse (sp?), but the centre for theoretical cosmology was only created last year so there must have been some funding there! It is possible that condensed matter has been hit harder- experimental grants do tend to cost more!But based on your comment above, I wonder if Condensed Matter is not suffering more than other fields.

Ummm... what exactly would he do with his spare time? All he can really do anymore is think, and by the looks of it he really likes to do that.That said, he is 66, so presumably will be retiring soon anyway.
As in retiring from his job: the Lucasian chair. You have to retire from such positions. Anyway, this thread was started before he'd announced his retirement.Ummm... what exactly would he do with his spare time?
