Now we know Stephen Hawking is smart. The theoretical physicist, who’s generally considered to be among the world’s smartest humans, proudly displayed a Patriots jersey given to him by team owner Robert Kraft during Hawking’s visit this week to Harvard. Kraft was joined by his girlfriend, Ricki Lander, though we don’t know whether the pair stayed for Hawking’s talk about black holes.
