OriginalStephen Hawking enjoys zero gravity during a flight aboard a Boeing 727 in 2007.
Reason
Physicist Stephen Hawking enjoying zero gravity with a huge smile on his face. His article describes this event. The photo is not technically as good as it could be, for example file size is small (797KB), but good EV and a rare composition of him. This was in preparation for his space flight aiming to: "increase public interest in spaceflight and to show the potential of people with disabilities". His space flight didn't happen, but this photo did! This is FP on Commons.
