      I guess you mean Stephen Hawking 🙂 well it depends on how you look at it! Definitely I am not better that him when it comes to Physics, as he is just brilliant 😉 also, most of my life I was studying science with focus on Biology, so at the most we will beat him in the Biology (but even that is not guaranteed! He might be great at it also!)…However if you study a lot and get pretty good at Physics, who knows? Maybe you will be the next Stephen Hawking!

      Do you mean Stephen Hawking? Wow he’s a pretty intelligent scientist who has done some really exciting work for science!
      I hope… if I work really hard.. that my research will be able to contribute a lot to science, and especially to animal and human health.

      Depends on what one is trying to compare. Are we talking chess? Arm wrestling? Holding breath? Mathematics inferring presence of black holes? Staring competition? Writing books on nutshells and universes? Morality?

      One will find every person is good at different things, so to compare oneself to others is challenging in itself.

      Given that I failed my physics A-Level, I am already at a disadvantage against Professor Hawking for his position given he passed it first time. Plus, I have already told someone else it is unlikely ecosystems occur in black holes, so my dabbling in that aspect in science means it is unlikely I will get to cross paths with Prof. Hawking.

      I think that everyone has their own talents, so it’s unfair to think about whether one person is better than another.
