image for Stephen Hawking to enter wheelchair race in next London Marathon
You might think its a long way to the nearest chemist but for me the London marathon is a million light years

Stephen Hawking was watching the wheelchair race in the London Marathon, on Sunday, and then called for a press conference.

Hundreds of reporters turned up at the press conference to hear what Stephen had to say and were surprised at what happened next.

Hawking in his robotic voice said "I want to enter the wheelchair race in the next London Marathon, its a long way to Tipperary, and its a long way for us to the nearest stars after our Sun, which is Alpha Centauri, but for me doing 26 miles in a wheelchair will feel just as long. I would expect to finish the race within 6 months stopping of at Starbucks, for the occasional coffee."

Will Stephen even get to start in the wheelchair race in the next London Marathon, because the race starts at Greenwich, where the Royal Observatory, and the Planetarium, are so he might get a bit delayed.

Make SPECTRUM's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
