Stephen Hawking wearing LED glasses? As unlikely as it may sound, this was the sight during the open ceremony of the Paralympics last week. Orbital performed ‘Where Is It Going?’ and Ian Dury’s ‘Spasticus Autisticus’ behind a set-piece including a large apple and a Higgs-Boson made of umbrellas. Stephen Hawking joined the fun, donning LED glasses and spinning around, while conveying a message about the universe.

The Paralympics run through this week, ending September 9th.
