Hear Stephen Hawking sing Monty Python's 'Galaxy Song'

Posted on

Stephen Hawking is an excellent sport when it comes to poking fun at his robotic voice, and it doesn’t get much funnier than when the renowned theoretical physicist uses it to sing Monty Python’s “The Galaxy Song” while “flying” through space.

Hawking recorded the track—which was then set to clips of old Monty Python sketches, footage of the cast’s recent live reunion shows, and Hawking zooming through the galaxy on his flying wheelchair—in honor of Record Store Day, The Guardian reported.

Listening to Hawking serenade us with crazy statistics about our solar system and pointing out that we’re very small and insignificant is just so uplifting. Watch below.
