A facsimile copy of a Einstein manuscript at the University of Jerusalem, presented to Stephen Hawking from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, 2006, two pages in one mount, 23½ x 21½in. framed

Distributed around Stephen Hawking's Office are a selection of items with layers of scientific significance easily missed by the untrained eye. These are toys and gifts that have the closest connection to Stephen's theoretical work: research he was particularly proud of, and which also provided an easy way to illustrate difficult aspects of his theories to visitors.
