...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

10 NOBEL PRIZEWINNERS (AND RICK WAKEMAN) TO PARTICIPATE IN A TRIBUTE TO STEPHEN HAWKING AT THE WORLD’S GREATEST SCIENCE FESTIVAL



  • “Beyond the horizon – Tribute to Stephen Hawking” will be the theme of the 3rd Starmus Festival, which will pay homage to the most famous British astrophysicist of all time and confirm the status of Starmus as the world’s most ambitious science festival by bringing outstanding personalities in the field of science education and space exploration together in Tenerife once again
  • In the words of Professor Hawking: “With this next edition, STARMUS confirms its position as a unique debating chamber for the future of the human race”.
  • In addition to Stephen Hawking, Brian May will participate once again, in what he says will be “the greatest edition yet!
  • Astronaut Michael López-Alegría, who is of Spanish origin, will be among the astronomers, astrophysicists and scientists participating in the event
  • Tickets go on sale via the organization’s web site today, 17 June
  • The “Starmus” video, featuring a soundtrack by emblematic musician Rick Wakeman, is being released this week on the festival’s YouTube channel  

The stars of the international world of science will shine brighter than ever in the Canary Islands during the third edition of the Starmus Festival, to be held on Tenerife from 27 June to 2 July 2016. Under the slogan “Beyond the horizon — Tribute to Stephen Hawking“,the festival programme will be devoted to the best-known theoretical physicist and populariser of science of all time.
I am honoured that Starmus III is titled ‘Beyond the Horizon: A Tribute to Stephen Hawking’. The vision of Starmus became an incredible reality with its first two historic festivals in 2011 and 2014. With this next edition, Starmus confirms its position as a unique debating chamber for the future of the human race,” declared eminent theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking.
Garik Israelian, founder and director of Starmus, added: “we are very proud and honoured to have the consent of Professor Hawking to pay tribute to him; as a result, the next edition will be a historic milestone on a par with the stature of Stephen Hawking himself“.
Considered as one of the most ambitious contemporary science festivals, the next edition of Starmus will feature ten Nobel prizewinners in the fields of Physics, Chemistry and Medicine:Harold Kroto and Eric Betzig (Chemistry, 1996 and 2014, respectively); biologists Carol Greider and Elizabeth Blackburn (shared award for Medicine, 2009); Robert Wilson andDavid Gross (Physics, 1978 and 2004, respectively); Adam Riess and Brian Schmidt (shared award for Physics, 2011); and the couple Edvard Moser and May-Britt Moser (who shared the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 2014)
