I was six-years-old when the Comet Shoemaker-Levy broke apart and collided with Jupiter in 1994. That was my first brush with astrophysics and anything related to the Milky Way. That was the start of my curiosity about the Big Bang and space, and then I read Stephen Hawking’s Life in the Universe. When I met him in 2001, during his visit to Mumbai (India), I realized what human brain is capable of thinking, and achieving for the entire mankind.
As Katie Martell of On-Demand Marketing, put it, “Stephen was in many ways a practical dreamer. That’s the right mix for any of us with a career in marketing.”
