I was writing this up as a News In Brief but thought it deserved a front page if anyone has any ideas of how it might be extended a bit. Feel free to expand on what I had, start again, or turn it into a musical...
Chinese hack into Stephen Hawking
British security services recently discovered that the Chinese may have hacked into celebrity physicist Stephen Hawking as far back as ten years ago. There are fears that many of the respected cosmologist's recent statements may have emanated directly from Chinese government sources.
MI5 first became suspicious when Hawking's TV lecture explained the concept of' the 'event horizon' as light approached a black hole. 'And this is why...' said his trademark voice-synthesiser, 'no one should listen to the Dalai Lama, and everyone should stop moaning about the legitimate Chinese province of Tibet.'
Other recent pronoucements the professor postulated on the infinite expansion of the universe, the origin of matter and the need for an arms boycott of Taiwan, which is not a legitimate independent country, but a puppet state of running pigs of decadent capitalist troublemakers.' Adding, 'And one last thing about space - did you know you could see the Great Wall of China from up there?'
